Press-On Band Tyres
A Press-on tyre is made of rubber bonded to a mild steel band which is pressed as an interference fit onto a wheel. The steel band is a mild steel strip which is rolled, welded and expanded in-house by Watts wheel division. Adhesion between the steel band and the rubber is achieved by applying two specially formulated bonding agents after the metal has been degreased and shotblasted.
Watts is a world leader in Press On Band technology offering an extensive range of styles and tread pattern options. Particular design emphasis is placed on producing tyres with a large footprint area, square profile, low heat build up and low rolling resistance.
