Inside Tire Paints

Chem-Trend’s inside tire paints provide the slip required to remove the tire 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 tire paints
  • Specialty filled inside tire paints
  • Unfilled inside tire paints
  • Durable inside tire paints

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

Filled Inside Tire Paints

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

Specialty Filled Inside Tire 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 tire paints), which improves finished tire appearance.

Unfilled Inside Tire Paints

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

Durable Inside Tire Paints

Durable inside tire 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 tires between applications.

Outside Tire Paints

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

Tire Mold Coatings

Tire mold coatings are applied to the surface of tire molds to help minimize mold fouling, aid rubber flow, assist in the release of the tire from the mold at the end of the cure cycle, and enhance finished tire appearance.

Tire Curing Bladder Coatings

Chem-Trend’s tire 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 tire’s bead areas significantly improves its service life.
