Retreading in South Africa

//Retreading in South Africa

Posted by Brendan

Did you know that the world’s largest commercial truck tyre retreading facility is in South Africa. Auto and Truck Tyres retreads more truck tyres in a day than anyone on the planet and they are showing no signs of giving up the no.1 spot anytime soon!

Some South African Retreaders do on average, the same number of retreads per day as some of the largest retreaders in the USA. Everyday thousands of truck tyres in South Africa are saved from landfills and scrap heaps by being retreaded and put back into service.

Retreading reduces the cost of moving goods around the country and across the border. Transporters rely on retreaded tyres to reduce their CPKs (running cost per kilometre).

Most major tyre manufacturers have retreading as part of their stable of products, including Bridgestone, Goodyear and Michelin.

What do the world’s largest Retreader and the big guys in the USA have in common?

Both use high quality products like MAE envelopes and curing tubes and Pincott buffing blades to ensure that the each retreaded tyre is going to perform as if it were a new tyre!

These products and more are available through Chemvulc, feel free to request a catalogue or a quote on anything tyres.
