Tyre Vulcanising

Tyres are an integral part to the performance and safety of industrial and commercial vehicles. There are a number of different tyre sizes which means the greater the vehicle size, the larger the tyre required, to support the weight giving distribution and balance.

It is a myth that tyres are made solely of rubber and in fact, is formed using 2 types of rubber which are natural and synthetic rubber. Natural rubber comes from the liquid sap of a rubber tree whilst synthetic rubber is a man made compound of about twenty different chemicals. Natural rubber cannot perform as a hard wearing compound on its own in tyres, which with synthetic, allows better structure, hardness and durability. Different tyre manufactures use different raw materials and therefore producing different grades. A tyre can have as many as 200 individual raw materials in its construction.

VULCANISING EXPLAINED

Vulcanising or vulcanisation is an industrial process used to make a finished rubber product by which a chemical process is used with synthetics, rubber and sulphur. Vulcanising has been used for over 100 years and allows products susceptible to high amounts of friction heat in particular tyres, to be re-created with a finished outcome of a higher, more robust product such as plant and agricultural tyres to become almost resistant to abrasion.

GOT A QUESTION?

HOW IS VULCANISING PERFORMED

It is a safe and durable way of fixing a puncture repair by applying a patch, welding the new and old rubber together to bond.

WHERE CAN VULCANISING BE USED TO REPAIR A TYRE?

There is no other permanent way of repairing an industrial or commercial tyre. Tyre vulcanising repair can be implemented on any tyre including side walls, shoulder and tyre tread surface.

HOW LONG WILL VULCANISING LAST

Tyre vulcanising is a long term permanent solution to ensuring heavy industrial tyres including agricultural, get more durability from performance. Naturally, tyres are susceptible to corrosion from hot and cold temperatures, Tyre vulcanising repair is the weatherproof solution to preventing the tyres from degrading.

As with most tyres operating in off road conditions, tyres are subjected to various uses and conditions and damage can occur in various ways.

WHAT VEHICLES CAN C&S TYRES PERFORM VULCANISING REPAIR ON?

A guaranteed tyre repair service for 4X4, TRUCK, AGRICULTURAL, INDUSTRIAL and EARTHMOVER TYRES and many more.

Tyres are fully examined for extent of damage to decide if safe repair is possible. If so, the tyre will be repaired to original manufacturer recommendations, we also offer the use of a loan tyre if available, while the vehicle tyre is in repair.
