A material made by chemically treating and toughening this substance. Values for its elasticity, non-conduction of electricity, shock absorption, and resistant to moisture. Used in the manufacture of erasers, electric insulation, elastic bands, crepe soles, toys, water hoses, tires and other products.
Tires are made of hot rubber, white lead and sulfur.
Synthetic rubber is made up of butadiene and stryene.
It takes seven gallons of oil to produce one tire.
Once you purchase new tires it is best to leave the old tires at the tire warehouse where they can dispose of properly.
Tires can be a source of energy called tire-derived fuel or TDF.
When all of the excess materials are removed from the original tire there are rubber chips left over. These chips are used for asphalt, doormats,water hoses, shoe soles, door stoppers, playground and athletic surfaces, non-slip product and for building surfaces such as floors.
RB Rubber Products is a company who takes tires and finds ways to recycle them rather than keeping them in the landfills or burning them
This company produces scrap rubber into crumb rubber. With the amount of raw materials, this is their feed stock that is manufacturing their products
Crumb rubber is a recycled tire that is broken down into a consistency of household sugar. The company takes out the wire and fiber contaminants leftover with the remaining rubber that is made into their flooring products
RB Rubber Products has developed a product to reduce sound
This product is called RB Silent-Tread which is a rubber mat that is placed between the sub floor of the structure and the finished floor in the designed space
The Silent- Tread is best used in high rises, office building, hotels or residences
This flooring system helps if the sub floor has imperfections, the rubber flooring lays flat on top of the sub floor making the floor more smooth.
With the rubber floor in between the two layers of floors it helps reduce the growth of mold and bacteria
