Process

Initial Inspection

First, your casings are thoroughly inspected to ensure they meet our high retreading standards. Our inspectors look for every cut, bruise, and puncture, as well as other damage to the tyre body. Repairs are made using strong, flexible Bandag repair materials.

Casing Analyzer

A pre-buff inspection that reduces costs as non-retreadable casing are removed sooner. Provides a bead to bead scan with unmatched accuracy

Buffing

Buffing removes the old, worn tread design. The Bandag buffer works like a lathe as the tyre is buffed, truing your inflated casing with utmost precision. That means a smoother running retread to satisfy your drivers and reduce vehicle maintenance.

The Bandag Non-Destructive Inspection (NDI )

Ultrasonic inspection for damage hidden from visual inspection is performed, using the NDI Tyre Casing Analyzer

Repairs

Bandag repair materials are designed specifically for today's new generation tyres. All repair procedures are an integral part of the total Bandag process. Nail hole injuries, crown injuries, and sidewall injuries can be repaired routinely.You save more valuable casings.

Building

Cushion gum (the adhesive layer) is applied to the back of the exclusive Bandag tread. Tread rubber and cushion are applied to the casing while the tyre is inflated to its normal running configuration. Cushion gum bonds the tough Bandag tread rubber to your casing. This bond becomes one of the strongest parts of the tyre. It's what makes our Bandag retreads dependable.

Curing

Bandag bonds new tread rubber to your casing using a low curing temperature. Your tyre is encased in a flexible rubber envelope and placed in a pressure chamber to prevent distortion. No excessive heat or rigid metal molds means your casings avoid the stress associated with other retreading processes.

Final Inspection

Every Bandag retread we produce is thoroughly inspected before it leaves our shop. The last place we want to discover a tyre problem is after the tyre is back in service. We're sure you would agree.
