NEW Year – NEW outer envelopes for KRAIBURG

Posted on 03 March 2015

From the 1st of February 2015, KRAIBURG are changing over the entire KRAIBURG range of outer envelopes to the practice-tested LD series. LD stands for Long Durability which means long life. Outer envelopes are indispensable for the retreading business and need to meet the highest demands. In addition to long life, easy vacuum extrusion and handling during the process of enveloping are just as important as a uniform, minimum growth of the envelopes. KRAIBURG subjected the NEW LD series to exactly these criteria in a field test – with very positive results! Easy vacuum drawing on the transport hook is possible after 200 performed heatings.

The envelops are easy to fit and remove and could be heated completely without separating agents. But that is not the end of the story by any means: The envelops can still be used in the next size up without complications for further heatings even after 200 cycles. Whilst the average life endurance of an outer envelope in the first life is approx. 120 heatings, the NEW LD series achieves a 60% longer life without having to change to the next size up! They are changing over completely to the higher performance LD series in February 2015 and are already looking forward to your orders.
