We have the largest stock of OTR casings and used tyres in Europe. We buy and sell worldwide, and we can also support you in the logistics. We provide used tyres and casings for trucks and passenger cars. All of our casings and used tires have an inventory, with full details of each tyres serial numbers, the depth tread remaining and condition.
Vulcanization consists of the application of heat and pressure to a rubber compound, with the aim of giving form and property to the final product. The exact determination of the method and conditions of vulcanization (time, temperature and pressure), must be made not only aiming the used composition, but also the dimension of the artefact to be made.
Our technicians have constant training, and are well-prepared to repair and vulcanize tyres on trims from 4in to 63in. Vulcanization and the repair of OTR tyres is a science, and there are only a few companies worldwide with the appropriate equipment and know-how to do it. Vulcal is proud to be one of those specialists.
We collect tyres to be repaired from all over the world and ship them back to our customers. We are also able to retread tyres up to 63in in our Brazilian facilities, EcoVulcal. At Vulcal, we offer a flexible service to meet specific tyre requirements.
