Reclaim Rubber

Reclaimed rubber, often referred to as "reclaim," is a recycled rubber material obtained from scrap or waste rubber products. The process of producing reclaimed rubber involves breaking down and reprocessing used rubber items to create a material that can be used in various applications, often as a substitute for natural or synthetic rubber. Here's a detailed explanation of the production and characteristics of reclaimed rubber:

• Available Grades/Products:

➣ Course

➣ Medium

➣ Fine

➣ Super Fine

• Epdm Reclaim Rubbers

• White Reclaim Rubber

• High Tensile Recalim Rubbers

Characteristics of Reclaimed Rubber:

Elasticity: Reclaimed rubber typically has lower elasticity compared to natural or synthetic rubber because of the devulcanization process. However, the elasticity can be adjusted to some extent by controlling the devulcanization and compounding processes.

Strength: The tensile strength and tear resistance of reclaimed rubber are generally lower than those of virgin rubber. These properties can be modified through compounding with additives.

Cost-Effective: Reclaimed rubber is a cost-effective alternative to virgin rubber because it makes use of waste rubber materials, reducing the need for new rubber production.

Environmental Benefits: Using reclaimed rubber helps reduce the environmental impact of rubber waste disposal and the demand for new rubber production, which can be resource-intensive.

Applications: Reclaimed rubber is used in a variety of applications, including tire manufacturing, footwear, conveyor belts, automotive components, construction materials, and more. Its specific application depends on the type and quality of the reclaimed rubber.

It's important to note that the quality of reclaimed rubber can vary significantly based on the source material, production processes, and the intended use.
