Vipal Rubber says it has offered the best solutions for the tyre retreading market for more than 45 years.
In this issue, Vipal Rubber shares with us the benefits of tyre retreading, how it contributes to a more sustainable world and the reasons to invest.
Firstly, the company says, it keeps tyre bills down. As a retreaded tyre costs up to 70 per cent less than a new one, you pay less for it. Secondly, any tyre that has a sound casing could be retreaded. This is why Vipal Rubber’s partners use only quality tyre casings for retreading.
“When the tyres reach the retreading plant, they have to go through a thorough inspection to determine whether they are retreadable. Once it is determined that the tyre’s casing is not in a good condition, the tyre would be discarded. High-quality casings and premium new tread combined with a good retreading process, in accordance with global safety standards with high technological machines and qualified workers, result in a quality retread that is not only safe but performs as good as a new tyre.”
Thirdly, Vipal Rubber points out that tyre retreading changes the tyre consumption cycle and extends tyre life. Without retreading, tyres are extracted, processed, used and discarded. With retreading, tyres are extracted, processed, used, retreaded and used as many times as possible before being discarded. This, the company says, changes the tyre consumption cycle and reduces the extraction of natural resources. As such, it saves resources and still contributes to the world economy.
Other benefits of tyre retreading, Vipal Rubber says, include reducing tyre waste that pollutes the environment, saves on petroleum use that reduces CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions and 100 per cent of waste generated is destined for the recycling process.
The company adds that it saves 57 litres of petroleum per retreaded commercial tyre and 17 litres for a passenger car tyre compared to new tyre production. It also lowers the demand for non-renewable natural resources. It is also worth mentioning that it takes seven times more direct labour to retread a tyre than to manufacture a new one, generating more direct and indirect jobs.
Founded in 1973 in Nova Prata, near Porto Alegre (Brazil), Vipal Rubber has four manufacturing plants, representing a production area of more than 1,970,000 square feet. Apart from retreading products such as precured treads, rubber compounds, cushion gum, envelopes and cement, the company also manufactures machinery for retreading commercial and agricultural tyres.
