German term or phrase: Grundmischung, Fertigmischung (tire manufacturing)
Grundmischung, Fertigmischung (tire manufacturing)

How would you translate this into correct English tire manufacturing vernacular?

General context:
tire manufacturing (for sports cars)
The mixtures in question are presumably different stages of the natural rubber (caoutchouc) mixture for making these tires.

Specific contexts:
(A) >>Die Störung betrifft eine der Mischkammern, in denen der Naturkautschuk mit Granulat, das aussieht wie Linsen in allerdings linsen-untypischen Farben wie gelb und violett, mit Öl und Ruß vermischt wird – die „Grundmischung“.

compounding [mixture] / finished mixture
Explanation:
from first link (tire and vehicle dictionary):

COMPOUNDING – Mixture of ingredients that go into the rubber used in a tire. Different chemicals or types of compounds affect wear, traction, cut resistance or other properties of a tire.

From second link:
Compounding and mixing. Compounding means adding carefully measured amounts of various ingredients to plasticized rubber and to latex. The compounding "recipe" helps control the elasticity, strength, and other properties of the final product. Sulfur is commonly added to bring about vulcanization, a process that takes place later in rubber manufacturing. Other ingredients used include accelerators, which speed vulcanization; fillers, which increase the volume and strength of the rubber; and antioxidants, which slow down the rate at which the rubber wears out.
