The rubber and metal tire valves in the ALLIGATOR product range offer the optimal solution for every requirement. The tire pressure valve sensors incorporated in the TPMS valves ensure that every tire is optimally protected against loss of pressure.
The rubber valves for cars made by ALLIGATOR fit perfectly into the rim. The snap-in valves comply with OEM requirements, which are considerably more stringent than the ETRTO (European Tire and Rim Technical Organisation) standard. They are suitable for all steel and aluminium rims and should only be used at speeds of up to 210 km/h.
One advantage of the rubber valves is that the elastic valve stem allows individual adjustment and makes it easier to measure the tire pressure.
As rubber valves are subject to a natural aging process, it is important to change them at every tire change. To assist with this, all ALLIGATOR valves are marked with the year of manufacture.
The metal valves – also called clamp-in valves – offer a higher level of stability and tightness, which is a particular advantage when tire pressures are high. They can be used at speeds of above210 km/h. They handle the centrifugal force better and therefore do not bend out of shape. This makes them the ideal solution for heavy-duty wheels on fast cars or transporters. The extremely high quality of the ALLIGATOR valves ensures that tires are sufficiently safe.
In addition to universal metal valves, ALLIGATOR also offers metal valves with ASC seals. The seal concept used in the ASC-HT metal valves ensures that the tightening forces are introduced directly into the metal of the rim. This allows the seal to do its job without being affected by external forces.
CVV Easy : combines the benefits of rubber and metal valves
The design of the CVV Easy tire valve combines the pressure load capacity of a metal valve with the easy installation of a snap-in rubber valve. The pressure disc holds the valve securely in the wheel, even under high operating pressures. Also suitable for transporters and motorhomes.
