Accella Tire Fill Systems has unveiled a new, vibrant color for its industry-leading TLC Tire and Rim Protection that will deliver greater safety and functionality to field operators and drivers of Off-the-Road (OTR) vehicles working in mining and other related industries.
TLC is a protective coating that conditions the tire wheel and maintains cooler tire operating temperatures, which helps to eliminate premature failures caused by rust and other deterioration. Accella’s most recent TLC Tire and Rim Protection formula—to be showcased at this week’s 64th Annual Off-the-Road (OTR) Conference in Tampa, Florida, held February 20th-23rd— features a bright, highly visible “Neon Red” that will enable earlier, safer detection of dangerous tire and rim leaks.
“Our TLC Tire and Rim Protection formula is a mainstay of our end-to-end technology solution offered for the OTR marketplace, and most specifically, the mining industry, where temperature extremes and volatile working conditions can take a toll on tires—creating both performance and safety risks for field operators,” said Mike Arnold, General Manager and Vice President of Accella Tire Fill Systems division. “The ability to better protect tires on the job, while also ensuring early detection of the most dangerous leaks, cracks and unwanted deterioration, directly saves our mining customers valuable time, money and manpower.”
Weather-borne effects are one of the biggest detriments to mining equipment’s wheels and tires. A signature of Accella’s TLC technology is the fact that it maintains cooler operating conditions even when faced with fluctuating temperature extremes of hot and cold. The TLC Tire and Rim Protection formula’s superior liquid coating is added to the tire air chamber and coats the inside of the rims to provide rust protection, while offering continual vapor dispersion to extend the life of tires and rims. Plus, TLC is non-toxic, non-flammable, and non-hazardous.
For OTR operators who rely on the safety of properly maintained tires for their heavy equipment (and especially those working at often dangerous mine site locations), Accella’s new color offering and standard TLC performance features play a critical role in better protecting operators and eliminating unwanted productivity downtime due to costly equipment failures.
