WZM > Production > COVER PADS FOR TRACK CHAINS ELEMENTS

Upon the Polish MoD Armament Policy Department order, WZM SA, in co-operation with CPAG (rubber devices production centre) STOMIL POZNAŃ S.A., developed and applied in serial production rubber cover pads for track chain elements for T-72/PT-91 tanks and for BWP-1 infantry fighting vehicles.  The cover pads have successfully passed qualification tests in the Military Institute of Armour and Automotive Technology.

The rubber cover pads produced by WZM SA are adapted for T-72/PT-91, BWP-1 track vehicles and their derivatives for use on all types of roads, and in particular, with respect to the protection of paved public roads.

Optimal solutions used in the process of the cover pad design and high quality materials selection guarantee:

  • retaining of all characteristics of the vehicle while driving on paved or deformable surface,
  • long life cycle of a pad of minimum 1500 km what has been confirmed by qualification tests – easy and fast exchange of a damaged or defected pad.
