Tyrewarmers for Racingcars

KLS tyrewarmers are also used by the top teams of Formula 1 and DTM.

 

Why use tyrewarmers?

Time-consuming ‘traditional warm-up’ of a cold tyre does not achieve the required full heating of tyre and wheel, constant initial temperature level nor an adhesion, attenuation, suspension, and slippage that would remain stable during the whole race.
Initially, a cold, i. e. stiff tyre predominantly churns in the upper layers of its surface. Within the first few laps, this causes trememdous mechanic wear in the first laps and then rapid solidification of the rubber surface by overheating (shimmering blueish!) The result is a lastingly reduced grip!
Achievable lap times drop when the tires have been standing for a longer time, not only during the first few laps.




Why use KLS tyrewarmers

The main problem for a quick tyre is introducing a high heat output, without curing the tyre due to excessive local heating temperatures already during the heating. This risk is usually in conventional resistance wire at the touch of a few lines or short heating wires because they are very hot (over 140 °!) To heat in a reasonable time, the tyre surface of!

KLS-tyrewarmer remove all of the tyres are cold and the heating process itself drawbacks and risks based on the latest, patented heating KLS technology. The most important advantage is that the adapted to the particular tyre size heating power is transmitted via a flexible heating fabric completely uniform:

To meet a tyre surface with KLS tyrewarmers after about 15 – 20 min heating time at a temperature of about 80 ° C! If this is the desired temperature, such as the built-in thermostats is increasing, then only the temperature of wheel or rim and there are optimal conditions in a fully-warmed wheel: In this state, the cooling after stoking delayed and longer waiting times between stoking and driving on the track can be bridged.
