Benefits of cold retreading
RETREAD IS GOOD FOR YOU!
Retreading is a smart process that clearly meets our customers' safety criteria, whilst respecting the environment and preserving resources.
Your RECAMIC dealers recycles waste using two processes:
Recycling of excess material to make rubber granules or crumb rubber by grinding.
Examples of articles produced using crumb rubber:
- Wheels and casters,
- Slabs for playgrounds
- Playing surfaces for sports and equestrian facilities
- Synthetic grass,
- Stop plates for shock absorbers…
- Energy production: tyres have a high calorific value when burnt. The chemical industry and sometimes urban heating stations use them as fuel.
Did you know that...
...retreading a truck tyre consumes a lot less fuel than producing a new one?
...at the end of its useful life, 80% of a tyre can still be used?
...producing an average truck tyre can require up to 75 kg of blended rubber, while retreading uses a maximum of just 30 kg?
...truck tyres can be retreaded up to three times, thus enabling three times the resources and energy to be saved and ensuring a corresponding reduction in waste?
