The advantageous reasons in production and use of rubber powder
How is rubber powder produced?
We all know that the rubber powder production process concerns the screening of the finest particles of a recycling plant. Our method allows you to create a high impact of friction in pulverized and determine the possibility of working any type of vulcanized rubber based on the set of the machine. Among the most important on the market we are able to produce the best very thin rubber powder starting from waste in the acronym SBR, EPDM, NBR, CR, IIR.
The meaning of rubber powder
It consists in a product normally resulting from the processing of industrial rubber and pneumatic post-consumer waste from which very small particles are obtained. The keyword of the meaning to optimal rubber pulverization for the compound industry is reached when the product reaches an average particle size of less than 350 microns or even defined as 40 mesh.
How the rubber powder is used?
The use of rubber powder takes place through a mixing process through the use of special machines called Bambury. In recent years, technological evolution has made it possible to insert rubber powder in extrusion as a use for additive into production of new polymers based on SBS, PE, PP, etc.
The advantages in the use of rubber powder and circular economy
For many people in the rubber sector it represents a well-known news. However, we highlight the main advantages of using rubber powder for the less experienced:
1) Reuse of noble rubber otherwise destined for landfills or waste-to-energy plants
2) It helps in the production of the molding of rubber products to degass in the vulcanization process.
3) It reduces the production costs of the rubber compound.
4) It concerns the circular economy process in the reuse of post-consumer materials.
This last issue is very important! The manufacturers of rubber products have started the path of material recovery by improving the re-trend and therefore the sustainability of their product. Several fashion brands also adopt this form of recovery in the rubber sector by using recycled powder in respect of the circular economy to help new generations in the important goal of safeguarding the planet from pollution.
