Retreading specialist Kraiburg Austria has expressed satisfaction with its performance in 2021 and reports pleasing sales growth in all product segments. The company recorded sales of 75.5 million euros, a 13 per cent increase compared with the previous year.
Retreading companies face significant challenges these days due to growing demand upon them to ensure greater operational reliability, workplace health and safety, and environmental protection. This certainly applies to the conventional spraying and coating solutions used in both mould cure and pre-cure retreading. These products contain petrol and are classed as hazardous goods that are subject to strict specifications and restrictions, including in the transportation of these hazardous goods, their storage and the processing and disposal of the empty containers as special waste.
The coronavirus crisis represents a challenge for almost all industries and markets in Europe and around the world. But tyres are system-relevant products that ensure, amongst other things, the uninterrupted transportation of goods and supply chain stability. In doing so, they contribute to securing the population’s basic requirements. Kraiburg Austria has adapted to the challenges associated with corona, aiming to guarantee all its partners receive the quality pre-cure and mould cure materials they require on time and with the expected high level of service.
Which pattern is most suitable for which application? The revised, 39-page Kraiburg Pattern Programme 2019/20 enables retreaders to choose the best retread thanks to its clear presentation of all important details: Product line (K_base, K_tech and K_plus), core range with width and length specifications, axle position and, of course, recommendation for use. Kraiburg says the programme begins with its top-selling K228 on the title page. This is joined by a further 20 popular treads, which are subdivided into Bus, Mixed Application, Trailer and Traction.
