Mold Cure Process
The application of tread in a mold cure retreading process is very similar to that in the new tire manufacturing process. Uncured tread rubber is applied to a buffed casing. The prepared casing, built to the correct diameter with uncured rubber, is now ready to be place in the mold for curing. Custom-Mold is not available at all MRT locations. Only available in select geographic areas.
