|·||It is surprising how fast section repair molds can be paid for and amortized.|
|·||Kettle cure repairs do not last as long as they are not compression molded. The complete tire has to be heated and kept at vulcanizing temperature which is not good for the tire and also wastes an enormous amount of energy.|
