It cannot be emphasized more that retreading is a highly technical process and requires the best quality retreading materials and an impeccable retreading process. In India, retreading is gravely challenged for its safety and performance against new tyres. Our retread partners battle these challenges every day to strengthen the fleet owners’ confidence in retreading.
We have designed INDAG Consultancy Services to help our retread partners win this battle. We extend the following services under this program-
1. Retreading Process Consultancy- The objective of this service is to educate our retread partners on the correct retreading practices and impart hands-on training. 2.

In such emergencies, we provide on-demand troubleshooting services to help our retread partners resolve the problem.
Retreading is a green and sustainable alternative to new tyres, it allows fleet owners to reuse their old tyres. Nonetheless, it has its own challenges, it is often surrounded by myths about its safety and quality against new tyres.
Scientifically, it is well established that retreaded tyres are as safe as new tyres, but sometimes the lack of using the correct retreading process results in a retread failure. Such incidents mar the reputation of retreading against new tyres.
We at INDAG are committed to helping our fleet owners fostering their trust in retreading and we take it as our responsibility to train all our retread partners in the correct retreading process.To fulfill this objective, we have designed INDAG’s 10-step retreading process, a renowned and successful process with the legacy of revolutionizing the Indian retreading industry.

With the changing times, Indian commercial tyre industry is also changing. We are witnessing the industry shifting towards complete radialization, with tubeless tyres also making their way in.
Repairing is a key process in retreading a tyre. Even the slightest mistake in repairing can result in the complete failure of a retreaded tyre.
Thus, it is imperative that workers at any retreading or repair shop are well trained in repairing all types of tyres. To repair a bias and a radial tyre, one needs to have different sets of tools and follow separate processes. Similarly, repairing a tubeless tyre is quite different from repairing a tube tyre.
At INDAG, we emphasize on training our retread partners in repairing different types of tyres under our retreading Process Consultancy services.
