About Other Mitas Tires

SHEAVE LINERS Our sheave liners are produced semi-finished with press curing technology. They have the following features:

  • Semi-finished products with ideally oriented polymer chains and product uniformity.
  • Low deformation in the initial curing phase for superior product uniformity.
  • Press curing technology to eliminate flaws in the product, e.g. porosity and surface defects.
  • No extra surface finishing is required after curing.
  • A flawlessly smooth product.

MATERIALS
Our liners are produced exclusively from new materials. A special compound for the liners was developed at our in-house laboratory. This compound is noted for extreme abrasion resistance, high flexibility and low heat build-up during operation, and is suitable for use in all temperature conditions. The compound is classed as antistatic and prevents static buildup.

DESIGN The liners are available in a wide range of ring dimensions and groove shapes to satisfy many applications and purposes according to the facility (e.g., chair ski lifts, any type of reversible, bi-cable or gondola ropeway, surface lifts, etc.).

APPLICATIONS Mitas sheave liners are suitable for use in all types of ropeway facilities. We also offer custom-made dimensions and designs.


Warranty conditions for rubber sheave liners The sheave liners are guaranteed for a minimum of 30,000 km of running life under the conditions specified by the ropeway manufacturer. The warranty is valid for 18 months from when the liners are put into use but no longer than two years from the date of invoice. Installing sheave liners beyond two years is solely the responsibility of the facility’s operator.

Specially Designed Mitas Tires

Mitas branded tires in ropeway stations are exposed to specific loads that create stress on the tires. The advantages of our specially designed tires compared to standard designs are:

  • Tread design B19 – longitudinal grooves – direction of rotation = direction of force → less wear.
  • Tire tread profile with bigger radius – bigger contact area
    • better grip → lower specific pressure on the tread’s surface
    • reduced wear.
  • Specially developed tread compound – provides low abrasion, secure grip, low heat build-up, and is highly resistant to ageing.

Our processes comply with all the standards applicable to the tire industry, including environmental standards. Our goal is to satisfy our customer with excellent product quality and prompt delivery.
