TIA Issues New Best Practices for Tire Storage
Nov. 22, 2013—The Tire Industry Association's (TIA) Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) issued a new best management practice for proper tire storage on Thursday.
The best management practices outline the steps dealers should take to store tires, avoiding exposure to outside forces such as heat, direct sunlight and ozone. Improper storage can affect the integrity of the materials, resulting in a loss of performance.
"Proper tire storage is critical to maintain the physical properties essential to the performance of the tire. We encourage TIA members and everyone in the industry to follow this best management practice," said Dick Gust, TIA board member and EAC co-chair.
The document, along with several other best practices recommendations, is available for free at the TIA website.
