The production of tubeless tires is a multistep process. After rubber compounding, integration of steel cords and assembly the green tire is cured to the final product we customers will buy. During this curing step the tire structure is “locked in”. All the value created during the tire construction would be lost if the curing was faulty causing defects in the cured tire.
The use of a performant release agent, like Lyndcoat™ BR2205, applied as inside paint or bladder coating is therefore a critical choice to minimize defects and maximize cost efficiency of tire manufacturing.
The release agent not only ensures perfect slip between tire and bladder for centering and balance of the cured tire, good air drainage to avoid trapped air defects and perfect release of the cured tire from the bladder surface.
