Something About Tire Retreading
What is retreading? Simply speaking, retreading is the process whereby selected and
inspected worn tires, called”casings,” receive a new tread. Some people may ask why I
should choose retreading? It is a win-win solution for both of your personal profit and
Whether you are a wise husband or wife looking for ways to stretch the family budget or a
fleet manager buying thousands of tires a year, costs must somehow be controlled in
today’s stringent economy. Many people like truckers, farms and passenger car owners all
purchase retreaded tires for one basic reason- to save money. A retreaded tire cost less to
produce than a new tire and sells for less- usually between 30-50 percents of the
comparable new tire price. By using retread tires, the commercial and military aircraft
industries save more than $ 100 million a year. Retreading truck tires saves the trucking
industry over $3 million each year. Retreading is an effective way to lower your tire costs,
Besides, retreading is very environmentally friendly. Rereading conserves oil a lot. The
synthetic rubber components in a new passenger tire contain seven to eight gallons of oil.
The manufacturer of a new medium truck tire requires approximately 22 gallons of oil, but
it takes only seven gallons to retread. Every year in North America, the use of retreads
saves hundreds of millions of gallons of oil. What’s more, millions of tires that would end
up in tire piles or in landfill continue their useful lives for thousand of more miles.
However, there are still some people doubt the
function of the retreaded tires. The truth is
retreaded tires provide the same safety, reliability,
performance and handling as tires that have never
been retreaded. Retreaded tires keep getting better
and better with continuous improvements in quality,
durability and reliability. Retreaded tires are
exhibiting their good performance worldwide no
matter what the weather is, and entire kinds of
terrain for every type of vehicles that may be from
municipal and school buses to emergency vehicles to commercial to trucks and military
Then how to retread it? Tire retreading is an established industry that began in the early
1990s and grew steadily. The retreading process starts with a though visual inspection of
worn tires, especially pursued by the use of different high-tech, non-destructive inspection
equipment. This equipment is used in order to observe inside a casing for unearthing the
invisible damages and to make sure that the tires are a prime candidate when it comes to
useful and full additional life. After the tires pass the strict inspection, they continue to
undergo the retreading process. The worn tread is accurately buffed away by using the
technologically-advanced equipment. Therefore, new tread is securely bonded to the
casing alike the manufacturer of a brand new tire.
For those which are not applicable for retreading, there are also some way to explore their
value. Through the processing of tire recycling machine like rubber crusher, tire shredder
machine,etc, these rubber powder can be reused as rubber runway and other many useful
