Perfect adhesion by laser cleaning

Bonding preparation is a key application of the 4JET surface cleaning process. Release agents and oils can be removed with laser radiation, and bonding areas can be prepared precisely. The technique is also used today in the manufacture of modern tires and enables the application of additional layers or components after the vulcanization process. For this application 4JET has developed the TCS – Tire Cleaning System.

Processing aids such as release agents and other lubricants which are used in tire manufacturing are removed by laser radiation without compromising the structure of the tire.

The cleaned surface enables the application of noise absorbing foam for reduced tire rolling noises, sealants for self-sealing tires, or RFID transponders.
