background
Tyre cost at unacceptable levels

Business committed to addressing this unsustainable trend

Practice was to buy all new tyres

Low monitoring of this process – leading to lack of cost control

Type of work – regularly need to replace tyres

Competitive market place

Company interested in viable sustainability projects

Early 2012 - Set up working group to consider these objectives

Background

Living our values Together … with Integrity … taking Ownershipseeking Improvement … working with Passion

what process was followed
Objectives and timescales clearly set

Review of tyre practice from industry and advice from manufacturers

Best practice collated and compared with requirements of business

Considered at all time safety implications of any changes

Clear specification as follows

All retread tyres on trailers

New tyres on tractor front axle, re-mix on middle and retread on back axle

Key performance indicators (cost) and review process

Inc inspection and road side support

Pence per mile tyre cost

Open book contract

what is re treading
Initial inspection - A visual and tactile examination of the casing takes place, then a non destructive shearography scan is completed detecting separations in the carcass that would remain undetected by the naked eye.

Buffing -Removes the remaining tread and sidewall rubber to predetermined dimensions by means of high speed revolving rasps and brushes and using computer-controlled machinery for exactness

Preparation To locate any minute holes in the inner wall, the carcass is subject to a penetration detection process, high voltage electricity is passed through the tyre while it is rotated. If a minute hole is located, an arc will be produced which stops the machine and identifies the location for a repair to be made. Larger holes in the casing are filled with compound and patched to rebuild the integral strength. Finally, the prepared casing is sprayed with a water-based adhesive ready for the building process.

What is re-treading?

Living our values Together … with Integrity … taking Ownershipseeking Improvement … working with Passion

what is re treading1
Building -The new tread is applied or stitched to the carcass using a patented computer-controlled process. A continuous strip of premium rubber compound is wrapped around the tyre while it revolves on an inflatable chuck.

Curing -The tyre is placed in a hot, segmented, radial matrix or mould within a curing press. The tyre is heated for up to 95 minutes at 150 degrees centigrade whilst inflated to 200psi with the use of an internal bladder placed within the carcase. The new rubber is vulcanised and produces the exact tread patterns and depths required from the mould; The same process as used for the production of new tyres.

Final inspection -This involves three further examinations.

A visual and tactile examination, where the trained eye will spot imperfections in the tread pattern or sidewall.

An inflation test where it is rapidly inflated to 110 psi over a five second period. Any imperfections in the tyre or weaknesses in the casing will cause the tyre to explode.

Shearography, which can detect even minor separations or porosity, invisible to the naked eye but which would cause the tyre to fail during service.

why use r etread t yres
Retreads are safe - manufactured and tested to the same criteria as new tyres. Alegal requirement in the UK since 2004 - mandatory across Europe.

They are durable last as long as new tyres, can last longer, thanks to their unique design.

The production process is flexible e.g. thicker sidewalls can be built in to reduce wear from kerb contact.

Widely used - Almost every other tyre fitted within the UK Commercial Vehicle Fleet is a retread tyre.

They save you money 20% cheaper than new budget tyres on average. When you add the additional cost-per-mile benefits, the savings are even more substantial.

Good for the environment -uses less natural resources

Why use retread tyres?

what was the outcome
Selected Vaculug - http://www.vaculug.com/

Full supply and service 3 year pence per mile contract

Switch saved £100k per annum on a budget of £430k on tyres

Enhanced control of spend and performance

53 tonnes CO2 saved in 2012

Each re-tread uses 75 litres less than a standard

Zero landfill

Important marketing tool
