Auto Aid retread technicians are known for their intense analysis. We inspect every retread casing manually from bead to bead with diligence and precision. Each casing also undergoes electronic nail hole detection to ensure no damage is overlooked. If a repair is needed, that casing is sent to the Repair Station.
Purposely to create top-quality tread-building through proper texturing and uniformity, ensuring the tread bonds with the casing for superior strength and long tread life. This is what our customers have come to expect. Done by inflating the casing to its operational shape and then “buffing” out the worn tread thoroughly with computer-aided precision.
Casings in need of repair are sent to the Repair Station, where they are repaired thoroughly and efficiently from crown to interior by our technicians, setting up the casing in a top-quality operational state for the Tread Building Station.
Precured tread is now applied to the casing. The tread building machine utilizes exact casing measurements to ensure precise tread application. After the tread is applied, the tire moves to the enveloping and curing step.
Before a tire is cured, it first receives a curing envelope to ensure temperature and pressure uniformity in the curing chamber. The tire is then cured in a customized curing chamber to set specifications of time, temperature and pressure, depending upon the tread selected. The result is industry-leading retread uniformity.
All Auto Aid Limited® retread starts with a thorough inspection and ends with a thorough inspection. No tire leaves the factory without undergoing a detailed, hands-on inspection by an expert technician. The technician inspects the crown, beads, sidewall and interior to make sure every tire meets high standards of we have set quality and the high expectations of our customers.
The extruder machine ensures that the uncured cushion gum rubber is placed upon the casing with uniform thickness. The extruder machine can adjust to the width of the tire, allowing us to retread more tires per hour. The cushion gum rubber is now ready to accept the tread in the tread building station.
