In this blog, we share what happened what team BKT touched down in Paris for INTERMAT 2018. Our customers were excited to see many of BKT's cutting-edge industrial and OTR products on display, including our EARTHMAX range, as well as getting a preview of some brand-new products

These days, BKT is on the stage at INTERMAT, the international exhibition for construction and infrastructure that is held at Paris every three years. This year, BKT is back in style, presenting an extensive product portfolio plus many surprises. Next to our cutting-edge industrial and OTR ranges, a novelty is debuting for the very first time in Europe. Are you getting there? Let’s find out together!

Premiere and great performance for… Portmax PT 93

Are you keen on getting to know this year’s novelty? Here comes Portmax PT 93, the special BKT tire for terminal tractors. Showing an extraordinary mix of resistance, stability and comfort, this tire debuting in size 280/75 R 22.5 is the perfect solution for intermodal transport and operations within logistic hubs. So, hoping that you are as excited as we are, let’s take a closer look at its special features:

  • Heavy-duty service. This recently launched tire has been specifically engineered for the toughest operations at ports, container terminals, distribution and logistic hubs as well as industrial sites.
  • Durability. The special anti-static compound provides an extended tire life-cycle even under critical circumstances and in demanding conditions, reducing replacement intervals and related equipment downtime at a minimum.
  • Handling. This tire is ideal for all operations requiring excellent handling, Portmax PT 93 is exemplary in terms of riding comfort at all kinds of terminals.

An increasingly extensive product portfolio

It goes without saying that a wide selection of top tires for industrial equipment is on display along with the novelty. One of the masterpieces, Portmax PM 90, exhibited in size 18.00 R 25, is a special tire for reach stackers operating in port and container handling operations. In addition, there is Liftmax LM 81, size 7.00 R 12, a specific pattern for forklifts with great comfort and durability as distinguishing features. Airomax AM 27, instead, displayed in size 445/95 R 25, is perfect for crane applications in the construction sector.

And what about OTR? Right three models out of the Earthmax tire lineup are on display: actually, the audience can view Earthmax SR 53, size 26.5 R 25, a specific tire for loaders and dozers operating on rocky terrain, along with Earthmax SR 31 designed for rigid dumpers and wheel loaders and in Paris presented in size 26.5 R 25. Last but not least, there is Earthmax SR 50, a special tire for loaders and dozers presented at Intermat in size 26.5 R 25.
