RETREADING

How to give your truck and bus tyres several new lives.

What is retreading?

Retreading means replacing a tyre's worn tread with a new tread. It is perfect for fleets that want to cut their operating costs and environmental footprint.

MICHELIN is a pioneer: it has been retreading tyres for nearly a century and is always developing its innovative technology. MICHELIN casings in various ranges are designed to be retreaded several times. With professional management aimed at meeting your business needs, MICHELIN can help you reduce your environmental footprint and maximise your profitability without compromising safety.

Why Recamic

Economical

Perform similar to new Michelin tyres, even on Drive Axle.
Low per cost kilometer(CPK)
Multi position tread design means less inventory
Lower fuel consumption for better savings

Reliable

High quality retreading standards and consistent performance
Michelin certified shops and retreading process
High quality treads in Michelin factory only for use on Michelin casing.

Environment friendly

Saves raw material and reduce tyres at disposal
Due to low Recamic tread wear and less rubber, carbon emission is less( up to 25%)

What Makes Recamic Different

Tread

Specially formulated by Michelin recamic tread are available only at Michelin certified retread shops.
Only Michelin casing will receive recamic tread
Tread patterns are similar to Michelin tyres

Process

Consistent high quality machines in all Michelin certified shops, specially designed to meet rigorous Michelin standard
Initial Inspection- 100% thorough inspection on automated inspection machine with integrated lighting system
Buffing- Automated radius buffer with electronic measuring sensor.
Skiving and repair- Enhanced specifications developed with Michelin's 50 years™ experience of radial casing retreading
Filling- Done with automatic extruder gun
Tread preparation and building- tread pattern continuity, with prefect centering and balance
Enveloping- Pneumatically operated spreader for perfect uniformity

Rigorous operator training and certifications to meet Michelin high quality standards

Casing Strength

Tubeless & Tube-Type
Bead protection plies

Improved resistance to damage in bead area due to high temperature coming from brakes or due to aggression occurring during fitment and removal or because of poor wheel conditions.

Benefits
• Less Premature removal due to bead damages

Airtight Inner Liner

Stops air from inside the inflated tyres from reaching the
casing ply cables.

Benefits
Casing oxidation protection.
Pressure maintenance
Increased casing endurance

Protection ply designed with new elastic cable

Increased working ply protection against tread aggression leads to significant reduction on crown oxidation.

Benefits
Less damage from road aggression and crown oxidation, Increased tyres and casing life potential.

Casing Ply with humidity proof cable

Better steel cable bonding with rubber, providing less casing oxidation, better casing endurance and durability

Benefits
Reduce air humidity effects and cable oxidation
Reduce risk of cable friction
Increased casing endurance

Working plies with high tensile cable

Allows an optimized tyres architecture providing higher crown ply resistance against shock and higher endurance in extreme dynamic or severe scrubbing conditions.

Benefits
Higher crown resistance and greater protection against road hazards.

WHY RETREAD?

Save money, be a sustainable transport player and enjoy the benefits of flexible use.

To add more value to your business over the long run


• A retreaded tyre costs 40% less than an equivalent new tyre.

• Get up to twice as many miles out of your tyres: a tyre can potentially be retreaded several times, for even more mileage potential and to make your tyres last longer.

• Adapt your tread to your needs and uses: up to 350 combinations of casings and tread are available!

Retreading saves natural resources, so it helps to protect the environment


• Reduction of CO2 emissions: Retreading 100 tyres saves 5 tonnes of materials and means more than 6 tonnes of CO2 are not released into the atmosphere.

• Less material consumed: 1 retreading = 50 kilos of raw materials saved. On average, just 20 kilos of materials are added to a casing, a 70% saving compared to a newly manufactured tyre!

• Less waste: around 300 kilos less for a three-axle trailer.
• Retreading 6 tyres for 3 axles means 6 fewer tyres to be recycled!
