Our research and development capabilities have enhanced our competitiveness and brand positioning, boosting our leading market position in China, as well as facilitating our profitable growth in both the domestic and international markets. Our R&D efforts are focused mainly on four areas, (i) new product development; (ii) improvement of production technology and processes aimed at raising quality and lowering costs; (iii) improvement in technical specifications and performance capabilities of our tires with a focus on safety, comfort, control, high-speed performance and design; and (iv) compliance with the product safety regulations of the countries in which we sell our tires.

In addition to in-house research and development capabilities, Giti Tire also collaborates on our product research various leading universities and top research institutions such as, University of Science and Technology of China, National Quality Examination Centre for Rubber Tire, and TUV Automotive GmbH Tire/Wheel Test Centre in Germany. Our tires are tested by our highly experienced engineers at our European Technical Centre that is located at the MIRA Proving Ground in the UK, a world-class facility providing advanced testing capabilities for tire performance.

Examples of product design and production technology achievements:

  Replaced hot water vulcanization by nitrogenous vulcanization to reduce the rate of vulcanization and waste during the production process;

  Replaced the single-headed extrusion process by the multiple-headed extrusion process to improve the precision of the components;

  Developed snow tires with a special outer cover to prevent slipping and to keep the tires from stiffening up due to extremely low temperature;

  Changed the tire-building process of a PCR tire in order to increase tire-building efficiency;

  Changed the nylon cover of a PCR tire to spiral wrapping to reinforce the tire's high speed durability;

  Introduced a triplex compound extruder to replace a duplex compound extruder (which is commonly used in China) in manufacturing TBR tires to meet local demand for high-loading usage and operations under high speed and durability; and

  Attained a leading position in China in producing ultra low aspect ratio and high performance PCR tires and low aspect ratio tubeless TBR tires.

Current research and development projects include:

  Developing ultra high performance tires for SUVs with symmetric tread design.

  Developing new PCR tires to meet emerging environmental requirements, such as low noise levels.

  Developing advanced Finite Element analysis software to predict tire characteristics.
