The purpose of initial inspection is to check if the casing is acceptable for Retreading. Inspection of the casing is done using a motorized Inspection Spreader. A thorough inspection of each tyre is done, both inside and outside of the tyre. Injuries are identified and determine if repairable, accordingly the casing are categorized as accepted or rejected for Retreading.
The primary objective of buffing is to prepare the worn tread surface of the tyre to receive a new retread. The original tread area of the tyre upto the under-tread is removed using a Tread Buffer, to provide the casing with the required surface texture.
Rasping & Repairing
All injuries on the casing are prepared using recommended tools. Repairing of the injury is done to reinforce the injured area, so that the casing can take a new Retread. All the deep injuries and through cuts are repaired using recommended patches.
Tread Building is the process of applying a Precured Rubber on to the buffed and prepared casing. A layer of un-vulcanised cushion gum is applied on to the casing which has already being coated with a layer PCTR Vulcanising Solution. The Treads (PCTR) is cut to required length, applied and splice on the casing.
Curing is the process where the Tread is bonded on to the Casing. The built tyre is covered with a rubber Envelope and fitted on to the Curing Rims. This tyre assembly is put into an Electric Chamber where the curing is done under controlled condition for a specified time. This ensures the proper bonding of the Tread rubber on to the casing.
RAW MATERIAL SELECTION
The Pretreads Rubber is made with the highest quality of rubber and raw materials. All raw materials are tested for their quality before they are used.
BANBURY MIXING PROCESS
The Banbury mixer is used to mix the raw materials uniformly for a proper blend of all the materials for a perfect final product.
Mixed Rubber from the Banbury is warmed and extruded to the right profile. This profiled rubber is cut to specific length.
The extruded Tread is cured in the curing press. Separate matrices are used to cure different patterns. A wide range of patterns are available in the Pretreads Range.
FINISHING & PACKAGING
The cured Pretreads Rubber are then trimmed and packed for shipping.
