Tire release agents
The ultimate constructive step in tire production is the curing of the assembled tire. The curing step is essential as all the value created during compounding and assembly would get lost if defects occur.
Tire curing is performed in heating presses, usually equipped with metallic molds to shape the tire’s outside during vulcanization. Inflatable rubber bladders shape the inside of the tires and press it against the metallic mold.
