New Preservative Extends Tire Life
Most tires on farm equipment, because of outdoor exposure or simply standing idle, deteriorate and rot long before their tread wears out. To solve the problem, Chem-Pro Mfg. has developed a new paint-on preservative. "It can save you up to 40% on tire replacement costs," says Steve Kyriakides, president.
Called Ag-Master #1, it's reportedly the first and only preservative of its kind for farm tires. It protects tires and other rubber products against deterioration due to aging or hardening, or to cracking caused by weathering.
Age-Master retails for $14.50 per qt. One gallon treats approximately 120 passenger car tires, or 60 truck tires. The cost to treat a tractor tire generally averages about .7% of the tire's original cost. For example, a $400 tire can be treated with Age Master for about $2.80.
In addition to tires, equipment such as conveyor belts, irrigation hoses, hydraulic hoses, or inflatable rubber storage tanks can also be effectively protected by Age-Master. Whenever a slight crack or cut appears on the rubber, application of the preservative will stop it from getting worse, explains Kyriakides.
