Tyron Runflat presenting at IAV 2020

Tyron is exhibiting at IAV 2020 at Twickenham Stadium, London, 20-23 January.



Loughborough, 20 January, 2020: Tyron Runflat Ltd is pleased to announced that Peter Simson, Director at Tyron, will be presenting at the International Armoured Vehicles (IAV) 2020 conference in London on 21 January.

Peter will present a paper titled, “The Evolution of Runflat Technology: How 30-year-old Technology is Being Transformed”, at 16:30 on day one of the event’s main conference.

The presentation will draw on Tyron’s deep knowledge of the armoured vehicle runflat market, providing an overview of runflat systems and how different solutions suit different 4X4, 6X6 and 8X8 vehicle applications within the defence and security sector.

Taking a broad view of the history of the runflat market, the paper will show how the technology has enabled military forces to tackle the persistent threat of IED and ballistic attacks – from their first deployment in Northern Ireland in the 1970s, through two decades of operations in the Middle East; and how Tyron is continuing to push the limits of what is capable when considering the developing threats facing military forces in the future.

“Whether by IED or ballistic attack, wheels and tyres are considered the weakest link when attackers attempt to mobilise a wheeled vehicle,” Mr Simson commented. “Developing and fine-tuning the technology to enable military forces to overcome this challenge on the battlefield proved itself a life-saving capability in the Middle East, and it remains a key requirement as we look at the challenges facing today’s forces – and tomorrow’s.”

Tyron Runflat is exhibiting its full range of All Terrain Rubber (ATR) Runflats at IAV 2020, including its patented multi-piece unit, the ATR-MP; and the ATR-Carbon, which reduces the total runflat weight by up to 40%, making it the lightest rubber runflat solution in the world.
