The Effect Of Solid Tire Pattern On Tire

- Oct 16, 2020-

Solid tires as forklift solid tires, loader solid tires, aerial work platform solid tires, trailer solid tires, are widely used in different areas. No matter what kind of solid tires, the tires will have patterns and blocks. Do you know the difference between different solid tire patterns?

The pattern is relative with the tires grip, traction, friction, drainage performance, etc., different patterns represent different road conditions. The use of different patterns greatly affects the overall performance of tires. Ice and snow roads, cement roads and better gravel soil roads, indoor forklift real trailers, etc., can choose ordinary light For solid surface tires or solid tires with common patterns, the deeper the pattern, the greater the elastic deformation of the pattern block, and the corresponding rolling resistance will also increase. For example, for a solid tire driving on a water-filled road, as the vehicle speed increases, the water between the tread and the road surface will form a water film between the two sides before it can be removed, and the tire will be slowly lifted up, and even completely off the road under certain conditions. , So that the vehicle completely loses maneuverability. This phenomenon is called the "water skiing phenomenon" of tires. Driving on gravel roads, steel mills, logging yards, mines and other environments have different requirements for tire patterns. Too shallow patterns not only affect its water storage and drainage functions.

In general, the pattern of solid rubber tires will gradually be worn out in use, becoming smaller and smaller. In order to ensure the effectiveness of the pattern, countries all over the world have formulated clear regulations on tire pattern wear limits. When the convex wear interval of the pattern block is about 1.6mm (1/16 inch) to the bottom of the pattern groove, the tire has reached the time when it is necessary to replace it.
