How Retreads Work

Initial Inspection

Trained specialists perform a hands-on, visual inspection from inside and out. This is done to find and mark all visible injuries.

Electronic Inspection

Damage can be closely evaluated by looking “through-the-tire” in the crown and sidewall areas that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Shearogaphy

This determines conditions within the casing, subjecting it to a vacuum while lasers measure surface anomalies. An animated visual of the anomalies determines casing condition.

Buffing

The casing is inflated to its operational shape. The process removes the worn tread surface, tries up the roundness and prepares the surface for a new tread.

Repair

Any damaged material identified during initial inspection is removed and repairs are made, essentially returning the casing to useful life.

Applying Cushion

An uncured bonding layer is extruded onto the prepared casing surface, and all skives are filled. The casing is ready for a new tread.

Building

A new tread is automatically applied with attention to precise detail. The tread must be straight and perfectly centered on the casing.

Enveloping

The assembled but uncured tire is encased in an elastic envelope and prepared for curing.

Curing

The curing chamber causes the bonding layer in the tire to cure and permanently adhere the new tread.

Final Inspection

A visual, hands-on inspection is repeated to ensure our quality specifications are met.
