The Future Is Retreading

Here at our ContiLifeCycle retreading plant we continue to drive innovative retreading technologies in our ever-changing world which is becoming more and more focused on a sustainable future for our planet. Commercial fleet operators are becoming increasingly keen to reap the benefits of retreads as a more sustainable tyre choice which creates opportunities for further environmental gains and savings in the UK road transport industry.

Our specialist product range has been engineered to perform for our customers and their bespoke needs. We are currently on a journey to launch our Generation 5 range which covers key applications in our portfolio; our new BD5 drive tyre in the Fleetmaster range has been engineered for mileage performance and longevity, our Wastemaster 5 tyre includes our pioneering sidewall protection features for urban waste collection vehicles and joining the line up soon will be a new regional trailer tyre. Alongside our Gen5 line up is our proven Gripmaster on-off road construction range developed with bespoke tread pattern designs for improved grip and stone ejection features to perform in demanding environments.

Every Bandvulc retread tyre we produce, saves 85% of the materials required to manufacture a new tyre, therefore significantly reducing our impact on the environment. This means we are able to save 30kg of rubber compound, up to 20kg of steel and 60kg of CO2 on every retread tyre we produce, compared to a new tyre. When you consider our customer portfolio includes many household names and covers a significant proportion of logistics fleets across the UK this mounts up to massive savings in our planet’s precious resources.

We are fully prepared for the future. Ongoing investment from our parent company Continental ensures that we continue to lead the way in research and development, alternative and sustainable materials and environmentally friendly production processes. For us it is all about continuing to respond to the needs of our customers and our planet, whilst driving innovation forward in our practises to achieve the best retread tyre.
