Arnco has introduced a new flatproofing fill material that uses renewable and environmentally based components and consumes 50 percent less petrochemicals in the production process. The new material features 100 percent virgin polymer that is not extended with granulated urethane fillers or rubber dust.
Arnco President Larry Carapellotti said new ecofil® tire flatproofing is as effective in performance as any existing polyurethane fill, cuts costs and dramatically illustrates the company’s commitment to a greener planet.
The ecofil product line pumps at high speeds, a 13.00-24NHS tire can be filled in less than 10 minutes and can be pumped using conventional equipment. It works with tube-type or tubeless tires; will not support combustion; has low odor, and is designed to handle the most arduous applications.
