Continental Introduces New 355/50 R 22.5 Steering Axle Tire for Lowliners

Continental AG has introduced the new 355/50 R 22.5 steering axle tire, the Conti EcoPlus HS3, for lowliners. Together, the new 315/45 R 22.5 drive axle tire, Conti EcoPlus HD3 and the new 355/50 R 22.5 steering axle tire, the Conti EcoPlus HS3 represent a new tire concept for towing vehicles. They enable fleet operators to make optimum use of the maximum 3-meter internal load height of their trailers without exceeding the maximum overall height of four meters permitted by law. In addition to their high load capacity, these two tires from the Conti EcoPlus family, which are specially designed for long-distance use and regional transportation with frequent use of freeways, also offer maximum service life and high fuel efficiency. With their low diameters, these two low-profile tires effectively lower the fifth-wheel height of the towing vehicle to ensure that the permitted external height is not exceeded, even when the internal load height is fully utilized. With a diameter of 934 mm, the steering axle tire Conti EcoPlus HS3 355/50 R 22.5 offers a load-carrying capacity of 8 tons. The drive axle tire Conti EcoPlus HD3 315/45 R 22.5, with a diameter of just 852 mm, has an axle load of 11.6 tons in twin fitment. Using the "0° technology" during the construction of the belt allows for high load capacity in the Conti EcoPlus HD3 315/45 R 22.5 and narrower drive axle tire sidewalls are achieved through the use of a special carcass cord. This highly stable but very flexible material enables the carcass to easily withstand localized high bending loads. The new rubber compound of the Conti EcoPlus HD3 315/45 R 22.5 provides optimum tread wear with low rolling resistance. A rubber compound optimized for rolling resistance was also developed for the steering axle tire Conti EcoPlus HS3 355/50 R 22.5. A special feature of the tread is its two-layer construction ("cap base concept"). The tread cap, with its own rubber compound, ensures optimal contact with the road surface for long service life. The special rubber compound of the tread base, which does not make contact with the road, reduces the heat generated in the crown providing maximum reduction in rolling resistance. The newly developed profile design of the tire improves grip in the wet, a result in part of the tightly interlocking micro-sipes between the longitudinal tread grooves.

The company expects special effect of about EUR 100 million, net interest result to be around EUR 300 million, tax rate to be about 30% and CapEx at around 6% of sales as the company estimates in previous years. Free cash flow generation before M&A to be at least EUR 1.5 billion.

E-b-trans Selects Continental as Europe-Wide Partner for Tire Management

Continental AG has announced that E-b-trans SA, which is engaged in the transportation of hazardous goods, has selected Continental as a Europe-wide partner for its tire management. E-b-trans is equipping its fleet with third-generation and second-generation Conti EcoPlus tires. In addition, E-b-trans is using the Europe-wide Conti360 service network, which guarantees fast and straightfor-ward24-hour service in 37 countries in the event of a flat tire. Another reason for selecting the Hanover tire manufacturer was its internationally standardized processes, which support tire management and guarantee complete transparency using the easy-to-operate CESAR administration platform. As part of the partnership, which is to last several years, Continental is equipping over 5,100 commercial vehicles with tires. E-b-trans is relying on the guidance of local Continental fleet specialists when it comes to selecting its tires. In the agreed mileage contracts, they ensure that exactly the right type of tire is employed to ensure an optimum combination of high mileage performance and low emissions. The tires are supplied by the Conti360 service partners, who are also able to install the tires at the customer's premises on a mobile basis.
