Cold Retread

Precure Process ( also known as 'cold cure')- in this process a tread strip, where the pattern is already pressed and precure is applied to the casing.  It is bonded to the casing by means of a thin layer of specially compounded uncured rubber (known as cushion or bonding gum) which is vulcanized by the application of heat, pressure and time.

-The steam pressure is less so the tyre is not under huge stress as compared to Hot process.
