Also in challenging applications: Continental industrial tires are ideal for the high quality demands of the Chemical and Pharmaceutical Industries.
Our tires are manufactured without nitrosamine and polycyclic hydrocarbons, so there is very little risk of tire wear particle contamination. The anti-static properties prevent the risk of explosion in vulnerable environments.
In Europe, the Chemical Industry is controlled by the ATEX directive put in place to manage explosive atmospheres and set standards for equipment and protective systems used within them. This directive helps prevent the risk of accidents caused by products used by these industries such as flammable gases or petrol. It is for this reason that, in order to prevent explosions, operating machines have to be fit with special tires which safely conduct static electricity to the floor and eliminate the risk of sparks being created between the tire and the floor. Moreover even our non-marking tires are up to 50 percent less rolling resistant than the competition. You can have the best of both worlds - a clean tire that consumes less energy, when you choose Continental industrial tires.
SC20 Energy+ and SH12 Standard Compound
Due to the tire’s natural rubber compound the SC20 Energy+ and SH12 offers exceptionally low rolling resistance and low heat buildup. This relates to extended tire life and reduced cost per hour. (More hours in between tire changes, less downtime and lower fuel consumption).
SC20 and SH12 Clean Compound
Continental’s Clean compound offers nonmarking performance in warehouse operations. The tire, due to being reinforced with Silicates rather than Carbon Black will not leave black marks on the floor. The SC20 Clean and SH12. Clean compound also offers low rolling resistance and low heat buildup.
SC20 Antistatic Compound
SC20 Antistatic Compound: The standard compound (black) offers a resistance of derivation lower than 10 computing power 6 ohms. In areas within the application where explosive substances are in use, this product is strongly recommended.
