Masticated Rubber: A Recycling Success Story 2001-01-0698

The term Masticated Rubber has become synonymous with a mixture of recycled rubber and fiber derived from passenger car tires.
Masticated Rubber has been used for over 15 years by a variety of OEMs for air & water management applications in the transportation industry. Its success is a result of being able to offer value-added solutions to recycling car tires and low price/high performance characteristics.
The objective of this paper are to provide an update on the advances made in the manufacture of Masticated Rubber compounds, to present data for typical applications and to present data showing the environmental benefits associated with using this material. Not only are fewer passenger car tires being burned for fuel or sent to landfills, but factory greenhouse gas emissions are also reduced (when compared to other rubber manufacturing processes).
