Crumb Rubber (Granules)
Crumb rubber is made by reducing scrap tyres into small, uniform granules. Steel and fibres are removed resulting in 99.9% pure rubber.
Crumb rubber enhances the performance of a variety of playing and sports surfaces, including sports fields, running tracks and equestrian surfaces.
2mm, 4mm and 5mm
Sports field infill and for moulding of rubber products
Playground surfacing and equestrian surfacing
Crumb Rubber (Powder)
Produced by further processing rubber granules through a grinding mill to increase the surface area of the rubber particle.
Used in road surfacing in both spray seal and asphalt applications as a substitute for bitumen binder. Crumb rubber comprises an average of 15% of the mix in these applications. Crumb rubber use in spray seal and asphalt roads reduce tyre noise, lasts longer from improved resistance to cracking and rutting, and uses significantly less paving material.
Tyre Derived Aggregate
Tyre derived aggregate can be used as a sustainable and cheaper alternative to conventional fill in civil engineering applications such as drainage material and permeable fill for infrastructure.
Tyre Derived Fuel
Tyre Derived Fuel (TDF) is an emerging use for waste tyres, reducing the need for fossil fuels such as oil and coal in heavy industrial operations.
As a fossil fuel replacement, Tyre Derived Fuel has a higher calorific value than coal, and greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by around 30% for the same energy input.
Carbon credits are available to users of TDF in accordance with the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting (NGER) Scheme.
Other Rubber Sizes
Our advanced European processing machinery has the capacity to produce any size less than 80mm. If there is a size you require that is not listed please get in touch to see how we can help.
Shredded Tyre Wire (STW)
Reclaimed tyre steel wire is very high-quality steel with high carbon content. Our steel wire is of 96% to 98% purity and is suitable for immediate recycling.
The recycling of textile fibres from used tyres is relatively low. Uses have been found in the past as stuffing for dog beds etc., with research on more sustainable applications ongoing.
