FOAM FILLED TIRES TYRFIL
Foam Filled Tires or Tyrfil is our patented formulated to eliminate flat tires, but with the performance and softer-ride of pneumatic tires. Foam filled tires or Tyrfil is a two-component liquid urethane that is pumped into the tire through the valve stem, replacing all of the air. The polyurethane liquid then cures into a solid elastomer. Once cured, it protects the tire from punctures and significantly reduces the costs of tire repair and replacement. The result is a flat-proofed solid tire, but with a softer ride than a solid rubber tire. No matter how harsh the conditions, foam filled tires – TyrFil will perform.
Medley Equipment is proud to offer foam filled tire service in Amarillo. We believe we have the industry-leading product in Tyrfil. Having your tires foam filled locally in Amarillo will save you time and money!
As a pioneer in the development of polyurethane elastomers, Amarillo’s Foam Filled Tires flatproofing products are specified by the U.S. Military as well as original equipment manufacturers including, but not limited to, Ingersoll-Rand, Bobcat, Caterpillar, JLG, Genie, John Deere, CNH, Gehl, Mustang, and V.A. Eimco.
HOW DOES FOAM FILLED TIRES – TYRFIL WORK?
The foam filled tires -TyrFil material, U.S. Patent # 4,416,844, expands to accommodate carcass growth with the carbon dioxide contained in the polymer itself. This “champagne bubble effect” expansion eliminates the increased internal chafing as the tire heats up. Contact our Amarillo location for more information!
Amarillo Foam Filled Tires patented liquid polyurethane is pumped into the tire through the valve system, replacing all of the air. Then the tire is pressurized to its operating pressure by using the urethane. Within twenty-four hours, the mixture cures to a soft resilient polyurethane elastomer. This process results in a synthetic rubber core that will never go flat!
Foam filled tires – Tyrfil allows tires to run smoother and cooler than solid and aperture tires. What does this mean to you? A longer lasting tire and a better performing machine. Additionally, Foam filled tires -TyrFil allows the operator to customize the product to the specific application by allowing the choice of multiple durometers, tread patterns, and pressure options.
Foam Filled Tires are formulated to duplicate the riding characteristics of air but adds stability to vehicles. It is tough enough to fill the tires on the heaviest industrial equipment without having that pneumatic bounce. Even in the most hazardous environments, tires filled with foam fill tires -TyrFil can never go flat and can run continuously at 35 mph.
FOAM FILLED TIRES VS. SOLID TIRES
The impact of G-Force vibration while operating industrial equipment is not only a major source of wear and tear on machines, but it is the leading cause of operator injuries. One example is Whole Body Vibration (WBV). WBV can cause fatigue, back pain, and spinal damage, leading to increased worker compensation claims. But foam filled tires – TyrFil was designed for operator safety so it transfers the lowest G-Force vibration of all tire flat proofing systems, significantly reducing WBV. G-forces can also cause instability when going over obstacles, which can also trigger costly accidents.
We tested tires filled with foam or TyrFil against air-filled pneumatic and solid tires to gauge the shock absorption of each. Watch what happens!
TyrFil Flex (formerly TyrFil LD and SuperFlex®) –
With a durometer of 10, this formula has the
lowest durometer for maximum deflection and air-like ride.
TyrFil Utility (formerly TyrFil XL) –
With a durometer of 20, this formula offers a soft ride
and ample deflection in more demanding applications.
TyrFil Pro (formerly TyrFil G2 and RePneu OEM®) –
With a durometer of 30, this formula is a general-purpose
material used in 90% of tire fill applications.
TyrFil Premium (formerly RePneu II®) –
With a durometer of 30, this formula offers greater heat
resistance for longer runs and optimum performance.
TyrFil Ultra (formerly TyrFil MG and RePneu®) –
With a durometer of 30, this formula delivers the highest
heat dissipation properties for extreme applications.
TyrFil HeviDuty (formerly TyrFil HD and HeviDuty) –
With a durometer of 55, this formula provides minimal tire
deflection for extreme load at slow speeds.
TIRE & RIM PROTECTION
When using TLC, you can be confident that your wheels will
be protected from rust and corrosion while working in the
harshest conditions. Additionally, TLC’s double lubricant will
clean rusting rims, making it easier to remove tires from
wheels therefore lowering labor costs.
TLC will also preserve your original tire liner. This product
reduces your costs by keeping the tires running cooler,
extending the life of the tires.
RESEAL TIRE SEALANT
ReSeal is the only tire sealant on the market that contains
Aramid Fiber. Aramid Fiber is a durable, high tenacity fiber
that is 5X stronger than steel and is used in bullet proof
vests. When the tire is punctured, thousands of strong
interlocking fibers clot in and around the puncture to
prevent any loss of air.
ReSeal is designed for large tires and heavy-duty equipment.
It can be used in many off-road applications including
all-terrain, waste management, landscaping, ground support,
mining operations, agriculture, construction, and military.
Carefree Tire’s innovative process of manufacturing is specifically
designed to create a tire that has a durable non-porous outer
elastomeric skin with a high-density cellular core consisting
of trillions of trapped air cells. The tough-yet-flexible outer
skin allows for a firm tread area that provides excellent resistance
to abrasion, cutting, punctures, and chemical attack, while the
dense micro-cellular core reduces rolling resistance, and allows
for greater shock absorption. As a result, not only will a Carefree
Tire last four to ten times longer than a similar pneumatic tire,
it requires much less effort to roll.
FOAM FILLED TIRE APPLICATION TYPES
Unlike solid or aperture tires, foam filled tiress -TyrFil offers a choice when it comes to pressure, durometer and tire tread. In other words, you are able to use the exact tire originally specified by the manufacturer. Also, this allows the operator to customize performance per application or environment. Foam filled tires -TyrFil is the optimal solution for hundreds of applications in industries including construction, mining, material handling, equipment rental, ground support equipment and agriculture. Even in the harshest of conditions, foam filled tires -TyrFil will perform!
Government & Military Applications
Foam Filled Tires – TyrFil stands up to the toughest treatment, even in a combat zone. From 50cal rounds to IEDs, nothing takes out a foam filled tire.
