Material designed to fill cavities in damaged tires. Can be used to repair or retread tires when using a mold cure system at a temperature of 150° C (302° F).
EXTRUDED CUSHION GUM (AZ)
Material manufactured into strips for use in extrusion. Promotes the vulcanization process when used for retreading tires in both mold cure and pre-cure systems. This material is useful in all types of applications.
OTR CUSHION GUM
Typically a thicker material designed to fill cavities in damaged tires. It can be used to repair or retread tires when using a mold cure system at a temperature of 150° C (302° F). This is a Premium Material that offers better tack, thus promoting adhesion between the pre-cure tread and the casing through vulcanization. In addition, this cushion works for both mold cure and pre-cure systems, and is available in low temperature (i.e., 100°C / 212° F) and high temperature (i.e., 150° C / 302° F) versions.
PRE-Q CUSHION GUM
A Premium Material that promotes adhesion between the pre-cure tread and the casing through vulcanization. This cushion works for both mold cure and pre-cure systems and is available in low temperature (i.e., 100° C / 212° F) and high temperature (i.e., 150° C / 302° F) versions.
SHOULDER REINFORCED CUSHION GUM
Rubber for Shoulder reinforced available in 1” or 2” wide strip for use in retreading radial and bias tires. This cushion gum helps to boosts the tread adhesion in the shoulder of tire. It also improves the final finish of the tire covering the buffed surface. It can be used with hot-air equipment or the direct steam system.
Thicker material primarily used to protect exposed casing/ply cord, and/or to restore the base of conventional tires and/or retread tires in a mold cure system at a temperature of 150° C (302° F).
Rubber used to protect tire sidewalls that also allows for changes to tire identification. It is specially designed for retreading bead to bead, and comes pre-perforated and with buffed powder.
Rubber used to protect tire sidewalls from ozone attack.
MINI EXTRUDER ROPE
Extruder material used to repair and/or fill tire damage cavities during the retreading process. This material can be vulcanized with the PRE-Q, mold cure, and direct steam systems.
MINI EXTRUDER ROPE – OTR
A tackier extruder material used to repair and/or fill tire damage cavities during the retreading process for OTR tires. This material can be vulcanized with the PRE-Q, mold cure, and direct steam systems.
Cement that promotes the bonding of rubber products such as PRE-Q tread, die size/camelback, strip rubber, repair material, and filling material, to the casing through the process of vulcanization. This cement is considered universal because it can be used with both pre-cure systems (using temperatures of 100-150° C / 212-302° F) and mold cure systems (using a temperature of 150° C / 302° F).
OTR THICK CEMENT
Thicker cement manufactured with a higher content of solids that promotes the bonding of rubber products such as PRE-Q tread die size/camelback strip rubber, repair material, and filling material to the casing through the process of vulcanization. This cement is considered universal because it can be used for both pre-cure systems (using temperatures of 100-150° C / 212-302° F) and mold cure systems (using a temperature of 150° C / 302° F).
A water-based black paint consisting of a blend of vinyl and acrylic resins in an aqueous solution. It can be sprayed or brushed on and is used to give retreaded tires a better appearance. Once the applied paint has dried, its elastic properties prevent cracking. In addition, it does not attract dust, it cannot be washed off, and it will not stain it if comes in contact with a person’s skin.
Rubber envelopes used in pre-cure systems. Suitable for either rim or rimless systems (with inner envelope or with metal ring), and manufactured from a special compound that: • Offers resistance to high vulcanization temperatures in autoclaves (Bonders). • Provides greater envelope flexibility, thus easily adapting to the different tread designs which range from side tread to heavy-duty block treads. • Helps preserve the original shape of the envelope, reducing deformation and elongation or premature degradation. Envelopes are manufactured in sizes specific to trucks and pick-ups and are designed to meet shop requirements.
Flaps manufactured using a compound that is heat and stretch resistant thus ensuring a long service life. The Vulca Flap is flat and adapts to the curing rim, which prevents damage to the vulcanization tube (Vulcatube) when preparing the tire for curing. Available in the same sizes as the regular protector.
VULCATUBES AND VULCATUBES XTRA
Vulcatubes and Vulcatubes XTRA are thicker inner tubes designed for use when retreading truck and light-truck tires, using mold cure and pre-cure systems. They have a circular section with a flat inner base to better accommodate the curing rim and prevent damage that can occur from it. In addition, Vulcatubes are manufactured from composites that are highly resistant to heat, tensile stress, and tearing, and have low air
RUBBER Wick pad
Galgo’s rubber wick pads are a suitable replacement for textile pads because they ensure sufficient venting. they do not stick to the rubber cushion gum on the tire shoulders or to the fillers on the tire sidewall, they are easy to handle during application, they adapt to the design of the tread under the effect of pressure, and they allow for a shorter sealing time when a vacuum is applied. wick pads are made from a rubber compound that is resistant to high temperatures. in addition, they are suitable for rimless systems with an inner envelope and for rim systems because they can be trimmed to fit if necessary.
Poly film, also called thermoplastic polymer, is a transparent, perforated plastic film used in the tire retreading process. It is applied during the building step to the PRE-Q tread rubber and serves as a lubricant ensuring easy, optimal application on assembly and disassembly of the rubber envelope. It also provides a mechanism for venting gases together with vents and venting belts or pads during the vulcanization process. In addition, use of this material boosts the performance of the rubber envelopes.
