Retreading Process

There are two processes of retreading:

  1. Hot cure process
    This process is a conventional process. The buffed tyre casing is covered up with un-vulcanized rubber strip. During the process of vulcanization, the mould makes a pattern on the rubber strip. 
  2. Cold cure process
    This process is a bonding process between the casing with a pressed tread strip using special compound or known as cushion gum.
