Rubber granulate made from virgin or recycled tires. The So-called Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) may be destined to several uses.
For the production of rubber granulate and rubber powder TerniEnergia uses an innovative technology of mechanical grinding (alternative to the traditional processes of mechanical crushing), which, taking place at room temperature, facilitates the machining.
The granules (Tire Crumb) can be packed in bags or big-bags, or is stored in silos for bulk transport in tankers or containers.
Rubber granulate can be made from virgin or recycled (tyre) rubber. So-called Thermoplastic Elastomers (TPEs) may be destine to several different uses, while most granulate is vulcanized. Vulcanization is a chemical treatment to improve the resilience and performance of raw rubber polymers.
The unique quality it adds is that whatever distortion is applied, it will always seek to recover its original shape. Nothing bounces back like a vulcanized rubber. The process also provides more consistent performance in changing temperatures.
