WHAT IS IT?
Hot vulcanisation is the chemical process in which raw rubber, via the application of heat, pressure and time, cures and becomes solid and durable.
Hot vulcanisation repairs are suitable for all injuries situated on the tread or upper part of the sidewall of a tyre.
A cold-repair does not require an external heat source. This process relies on a chemical reaction to provide cohesion between repair products and the tyre.
Cold vulcanisation repair material is suitable for small cosmetic repairs and minor bead repairs to tyres.
Hot vulcanisation produces a far superior result than cold vulcanisation as the applied heat and pressure ensures the repair material is sufficiently uniform to the injury, all trapped air is totally eliminated and it is permanently mated to the parent rubber.
