SV-4 tyre features

The SV-4 benefits from a new structure and new materials, developed by the Nankang new product simulation system. The profile design is optimized tyre's footprint (tread contact width) which can improve snow performance.

The directional V-shape tread pattern design, with main lateral grooves stretching curvedly from center to shoulder, enhances lateral drainage and snow grip. The broad sipes on center rib provides the powerful biting edges, becoming snow rake to expel ice and snow. The recessive design on circumferential groove wall enhances the water-film breaking ability to reduce aquaplaning, and snow expelling efficiency.

On tread shoulder, lateral grooves blocks increase snow biting edges to maximize wet and snow performance. The varied shape blocks and ladder-shape pattern areas broaden the contact area with ice/snow to strengthen snow-shoveling capability and reinforce snow traction. To maximize snow grip, 3D-sipe design is adopted with different depth depending on different block location. In total, SV-4 delivers better wet braking performance than Europe prime brand, and almost 10% better than predecessor in Snow braking performance, according to the benchmark report done in Europe.

Eurofins Technologies announces the launch of the VIRSeek SARS-CoV-2 Mplex I and Mplex II Wastewater real-time RT-PCR kits to provide an efficient solution for SARS-CoV-2 detection in wastewater, including the Omicron variant of concern. Wastewater-based epidemiology has become an important approach in order to comprehensively monitor the profile of SARS-CoV-2 infections in highly populated areas. Methods to detect SARS-CoV-2 viral RNA in untreated wastewater have advanced over the last number of months. Data has shown that concentrations of viral RNA correlate with trends in reported COVID-19 cases, demonstrating the importance of wastewater testing as a public health tool. The European Commission has recommended1 the implementation of effective systems for the surveillance of SARS-CoV-2 in wastewater.
