Retreading process

Every tyre to be retreaded undergoes several checks to ensure it’s suitable for retreading.

On passing the initial examination, the tyre is then buffed. This involves removing residual tread and preparing the surface for the new tread. Where necessary, the casing is repaired and prepared for the subsequent building stage, entailing application of the tread compound depending on the intended use of the tyre.

At the end of the process, the tyre is ready for curing.
