Michelin tie up for retreading radial tyres - Recamic process
Pioneers of tyre recycling in India, our roots trace back to the very first retread plant set up in the 1940s. Retreading drastically cuts down on the wastage of rubber, especially tyre cases that can be retread multiple times within our high standards of quality. Moreover, this prevents the destruction of old tyres either in landfills or burning. As advocates of zero-wastage, every bit of left over rubber from our manufacturing processes is used in the production of other rubber products
A tyre is a composite product made out of Natural Rubber, synthetic rubber, Nylon/Rayon cords, Steel, Oils, carbon black and chemicals. It is an inseparable assembly of various materials manufactured to exacting standards to withstand high pressure and temperature.
a) Tyres can be classified as Bias (Conventional) tyres or Radial tyres. They can also be classified as Tube tyres or Tubeless tyres. In a tubeless tyre, the function of a tube is replaced by an inner liner which is an integral part of the tyre itself.
b) Tyre can also be classified with respect to its application - like Passenger, Commercial and Off the Road.
The main factor that affects the performance and the life of a tyre is the heat generated in operation. The lower the heat generated or the faster it is dissipated, the life of tyre is prolonged.
There are many factors which influence the performance and life of a tyre. However, the 3 major reasons are: Overload, Over/under inflation and Over-speed.
Tyre must be removed when the original tread on the tyre wears out. This is indicated by Tread Wear Indicators (TWI) which are provided inside the grooves of the tread at various places along the circumference.
For best results, it is always recommended that a commercial tyre be removed when at least 1.6 mm of tread is still remaining.
A retreaded tyre is as safe as a new tyre, provided the retreading is carried out by a qualified retreader with technical expertise using recommended quality of materials and accredited processes.
A tyre has to be inspected thoroughly based on a thorough, established inspection procedure to ascertain the strength of the casing. Only if the strength or integrity of the casing is found fit, the tyre can be accepted for retreading for a further lease of life.
This depends on the strength of the casing and the type of application. As long as the casing integrity is intact, a tyre can be retreaded multiple times.
Cost of a tyre is invariably the 2nd largest expense to a vehicle user (especially a fleet operator), probably only next to cost of fuel. Hence it is only logical that every user should control his investment on tyres by minimizing the cost of tyres or ensuring lowest cost per kilometer.
There are many reasons and factors that influence the performance and maintenance like conditions of load, road, application, weather, driving habits, tyre maintenance etc.
Basically there are 2 processes viz. Precured (Cold) process and Conventional (Hot) process. The process to be chosen for a particular tyre depends on the condition of the tyre and its casing strength.
The construction of a Bias (Nylon) tyre and that of an equivalent size of Radial tyre are entirely different. Therefore, it is not recommended to mix Bias and Radial tyres in the same axle of a vehicle.
Retreading by itself is a recycling process. Scrapping and destruction of a tyre or any rubber product can cause atmospheric and air pollution affecting the environment. Hence every tyre should be recycled by a quality retreading process, as many times as possible, to protect our environment and to preserve planet earth.
It is always best to choose a retreader who has the best practices and expertise for inspection and process standards using quality inputs.
It is unwise to choose a retreader only on the basis of price as it endangers the performance and safety of the tyre, vehicle and the goods or the passengers carried.
The price of retreading a tyre per-se is not important. However, it is very important to choose a retreader who can give the user the lowest cost per kilometer or lowest cost per hour than choosing cheaper options.
Apart from cost of retreading, it is very important to ensure "Safety" of the tyre and its operation. It is of paramount importance for a user to ensure safety of the vehicles, goods and passengers.
A detailed and structured Tyre Care Training for every user is available
The air pressure are always be checked when the tyre is cold â€“ preferably in the morning.
Inflation should never be checked when the tyres are hot or after a trip.
It means matching of 2 tyres by a set procedure before they can be selected for a dual fitment position. Standard procedures are available for dual matching for different sizes of tyres. If the pair of tyres are not matched for dual fitment, it can result in failure of the tyres resulting in costly loss or fatal accident.
