Research & Development

Ralson takes pride in an accomplished and proficient R&D Centre and Quality System – It’s the engine that fuels our growth. We consistently invest in honing the quality of existing tyres and developing new tyres. Our R&D Centre is the only one of its kind, that is recognized by the Ministry of Science and Technology’s Department of Scientific & Industrial Research (DSIR, Government of India).

The four objectives that drive the companys endeavors towards research and development are:

Maximize the
life of tyres

Improve riding
comfort

Reduce
pedaling effort

Enhance the
reliability of tyres

Some of the salient features of our R&D facility are

Ralson’s labs are capable of Reverse Engineering to analyse characteristics of international brands and then make Ralson tyres better than the benchmarked tyres (e.g. FTIR & TGA equipment)

We use Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) for polymer identification, RM analysis and micro-structural analysis of synthetic rubbers like SBR, PBR etc. (Cis, Trans, Vinyl and Bound Styrene Content). It is also used to tend to field complaints and process related problems.

Thermo Gravimetric Analyser (TGA) is used to perform compositional analysis of bench-marked tyres.

The Ozone Chamber is used to test compounds and tyres for ozone resistant characteristics.

Hot air shrinkage and stiffness of the fabric are tested with HAS and stiffness testing equipment.

Tensile Testing, Abrasion Resistance and Flex Resistance Testing are done via a tensile machine, DIN abrader and flex testing machine to study mechanical properties of our tyres.

We use ‘Lab Banbury’ and ‘Open Mill’ for compound mixing and development.

Quality Assurance

For the finest quality of tyres, Ralson uses the latest technology and state-of-the art machinery, to ensure a robust and reliable quality assurance system.

  • Labs are equipped with sophisticated testing equipment to evaluate raw materials before employing them. Latest machinery is used to test every input, going into the manufacturing of tyres. This ensures the finest quality of our final product.
  • The company relies on sophisticated machines like Tyre Characteristics Testing Machine, Plunger Testing machine,Tyre Tread Footprint Analysis etc.to test the quality of finished products.
  • Endurance Testing is done to assess the tyres in extreme driving conditions.
