GOODTIRE BUTYL MOTORCYCLE TUBES
Goodtire Butyl Motorcycles Tubes are available in all rim sizes and profile applications to suit not only today's range of motorcycles but also those form the past years. They are individually boxed for added protection from UV degradation.
Advantage of Butyl Rubber Inner Tubes
1. Excellent aging stability (compared with Natural Rubber)
Oxygen and ozone in the atmosphere will cause natural rubber to oxidize deteriorate, and eventually crack. Because Butyl Rubber has good aging stability, innertubes made from it have a longer life span.
2. High Impermeability to Gases
Butyl Rubber exhibits excellent air retention pressure during it’s service life. This is due to the highly packed polyisobutylene molecule.
3. High Resistance to Heat
Owing to the low level of unsaturation existing in the polymeric chain of butyl, the elastomer displays improved resistance towards exposure to extreme heat. These advantages allow butyl inner tubes to function at higher temperatures for a much longer period of time.
Butyl inner tubes have been shown to provide the following benefits:
A) Longer operational service life.
B) Lower maintenance cost (e.g. LESS TIRE REPAIRS).
C) Reduced operational expenditure - LESS REPAIRS, BETTER FUEL CONSUMPTION. (e.g: Every loss of 10 PSI inflation pressure will increase tyre rolling resistance by 6%. This gain in rolling resistance will result in an increase of fuel consumption by 2.5%).
D) Improved safety.
