Goodyear introduces DuraSeal technology to line-haul trucking

DALLAS, Texas - Goodyear has adapted its self-sealing commercial tire technology on a broader scale for use in long-haul applications.


DALLAS, Texas – Goodyear has adapted its self-sealing commercial tire technology on a broader scale for use in long-haul applications.

The new Unisteel G316 LHT line-haul trailer tire featuring DuraSeal technology is designed to allow semi-trucks to continue operating after a tire is punctured by road debris in the repairable tread area.

The technology, which is already being used in applications such as logging, construction and mining, uses a gel-like, solventfree compound built into the inner liner of the tire. It’s designed to consistently and instantly seal punctures, reducing roadside assistance expenses.

“The technology transfer into line-haul trucking is significant,” said Steve McClellan, vice-president of Goodyear commercial tire systems. “DuraSeal in the G316 LHT helps reduce fleet downtime, helps lower a company’s cost of operation and enhances retreadability.”

Goodyear is using DuraSeal in the G316 LHT trailer tire, which also is available in a fuel-efficient version featuring Fuel Max Technology.
