Bandag has launched two tread products molded from a new group of compounds called Longeviti Series, which the company claims increase tread wear by as much as 20%.
Bandag’s new BDM (Bandag Drive Mixed) and BRM (Bandag All-Position Mixed) treads were developed specifically for the refuse and construction industries.
In developing BDM, Bandag engineers employed computer-aided design technology to enhance traction characteristics.
“This makes BDM an excellent drive position choice for refuse and construction companies that deal with mud and snow in severe climates,” said Bob Otting, product manager, global tire products – franchise marketing.
BRM was developed for on/off-road and pick up and delivery applications in milder climates. Designed for use in all positions, BRM is best in the drive position, where its 26/32″ tread depth delivers long and even wear, Bandag says.
BRM and BDM treads fit most tire sizes used in the construction and waste industries, including 111R22.5, 11R24.5 and 315/80R22.5.
