Inside Tyre Paints

Chem-Trend’s inside tyre paints provide the slip required to remove the tyre from the bladder without issue. This affects appearance and performance. Therefore, it is a vital step in the extremely complex manufacturing process.

Chem-Trend supplies the following four categories of inside paints:

  • Filled inside tyre paints
  • Specialty filled inside tyre paints
  • Unfilled inside tyre paints
  • Durable inside tyre paints

All inside tyre paints manufactured and supplied by Chem-Trend are water-based, providing solutions that are centered on health, safety and environmental (HSE) concerns.

Filled Inside Tyre Paints

Chem-Trend’s advanced filled inside tyre paints have been specifically formulated to provide maximum levels of slip as well as air bleed during the shaping process to ensure defect-free tyres.

Specialty Filled Inside Tyre Paints

Chem-Trend recently introduced a new family of high-performance water-based filled inside paints based on a unique blend of raw materials. The carefully balanced ratios of these components allow users to employ lower coating weights (compared to conventional filled inside tyre paints), which improves finished tyre appearance.

Unfilled Inside Tyre Paints

Chem-Trend pioneered the development of unfilled inside paints. These products are applied to the inside of each tyre prior to the curing process. They provide outstanding slip, required to ensure good tyre uniformity and appearance. Because they do not contain any filler, optimum tyre appearance is achieved with the inner and outer surfaces of the tyres appearing clean. Any material that is accidentally transferred to the bead face or outer sidewall of the tyre through over-spray, or by operators handling the freshly treated uncured tyres, will not visibly mark the tyre. The inner liner of the finished tyre looks extremely clean in the racks of tyre sales outlets, an important feature in many markets.

Durable Inside Tyre Paints

Durable inside tyre paints are specifically developed to transfer to the surface of the curing bladder to provide a reservoir of slip-and-release functionality, allowing the release of multiple untreated tyres between applications.

Outside Tyre Paints

Outside tyre paints are applied to the outside of each tyre, prior to vulcanization, to provide improved air bleed and rubber flow.

Tyre Mould Coatings

Tyre moud coatings are applied to the surface of tyre moulds to help minimise mould fouling, aid rubber flow, assist in the release of the tyre from the mould at the end of the cure cycle, and enhance finished tyre appearance.

Tyre Curing Bladder Coatings

Chem-Trend’s tyre curing bladder treatments protect the working surface of the curing bladder against chemical and abrasion attack during its service life. Protecting the bladder against the high level of abrasion that occurs around the region of its surface that is in contact with the tyre’s bead areas significantly improves its service life.
