Conventional Process (also known as ‘mould cure’ or ‘hot cure’ process) – In this process a un-vulcanized rubber strip is applied on the buffed casing of the tyre. This strip takes the pattern of the mould during the process of vulcanization; This is similar to making New Tyre.
Suitable under following circumstances
-When the tyre has to be used for Mining Or Road Construction Application.
-When the lead is very less.
-When the tyre ply has been exposed at some points.
-When the side tread is damaged while running.
-As the process is similar to new tyre , rubber is filled so all the small holes or weak tyres gets completely filled.
-The chances of rubber to be removed from tyre is very less.
-Since the rubber is not cured retreader can make his own quality of rubber with proper technology.
-Life of tyre will be more if the tyres are used as per the application mentioned.
