Tyre Markers

Tyre markers such as crayons and inspection markers are ideal for industrial applications in the tyre, rubber, hose, automotive, and other OEM industries. The products we supply are a cost-effective solution for simple inspection and identification purposes.

Product Description

Tyre markers are used to mark the tyre for both inspection and for identification, as well as being used as handy markings during the assembly process. They can help you locate areas for repair, like a puncture or tear on the tyre. There are a range of colours for the tyre markers to help identify different areas or issues, but they can also be used to add lettering to the outside of the tyre.

The most common ink used on tyres are dot markers. Most of the dot markers used on tyres are either water or solvent-based: solvent-based is useful for quicker drying times, whilst water-based is useful for a prolonged period of wear without risk of dulling. The markings help to align the tyre correctly when it is being mounted on the vehicle or during the rim assembly process, when all the tyres need to be synchronised together.
