Pre-treated bladders
Pre-treated bladder

A common problem with new bladders is the adhesion of their surface to the tire. It is standard practice in the industry to apply an arbitrary silicone release agent to reduce this initial tackiness. The first tires cured with these bladders tend to stick to them, shortening bladder life and even pulling them off their clamping, thus increasing overall costs. Rhein Chemie offers semi-permanent and permanent bladder coatings as well as pre-treated bladders. The coatings reduce tire defects and increase overall bladder life, while also eliminating bladder tackiness.
To ensure easy unfolding of the new bladders, all Rhenoshape® bladders are coated on the inside.
