APV Tread Cement is ideal for tire manufacturers that want a cost-effective way to adhere components such as the underside of extruded tread, splices, and skives together.

Tread cement is best applied by a finely atomized air/fluid spray gun to ensure a very thin film and complete coverage. The minimal amount of product needed for adhesion can provide tremendous cost savings for manufacturers. After allowing the cement to dry, the rubber components can be joined together for the curing process.
