Michelin Retread

SAFETY FOR YOUR FLEET

MADE TO THE HIGHEST OF STANDARDS

ENVIRONMENTALY FRIENDLY

INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY REDUCED DOWNTIME

DELIVER SIMILAR PERFORMANCE TO THAT OF A NEW MICHELIN TYRE

Different Life Stages of Michelin Truck Tyres

At the end of its first life, a Michelin tyre can be regrooved, then retread, then retread again, increasing your mileage by more than 300% ! Among the worldwide manufacturers, Michelin is the most heavily involved in retreading, and our R&D efforts are focused on developing the best casing designed for undergoing retreading.

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
   Vacuuming- Assuring excellence adherence during processing
   Curing- Fully automatic electric curing chamber with automatic differential pressure control
   Final inspection- 100% thorough inspection on automated inspection machine with integrated lighting system

Training and Quality control

   Operators trained and certified to meet Michelin standards and specifications
   Strict quality control and auditing by Michelin
   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

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

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

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.

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.
