Everthing You Need to Know about Rubber Powder

Jul. 23, 2022

Rubber powder: what does it mean?

Rubber dust is the finest product after waste solid tires recycling. The name 'powder' clearly specifies its size which is between 0,1 and 1 millimeter. The rubber powder we produce and sell is completely clean from any iron and textile impurities. This is very important for the manufacturing of new objects.

The rubber powder

How is it used?

Rubber dust from waste solid tires recycling has various applications, in industrial products manufacturing above all. The main tires manufacturers use it in new tires compounds. Also, rubber powder is used in the making of insulating boards, seals and anti-vibration panels. The ultimate use is mixed with bitumen to obtain rubber asphalt.


Rubber powder becomes asphalt: the main advantages

Rubber asphalt is big news in the building area. Further, it has some important advantages that we are going to explain.


First of all, money saving is guaranteed both for the manufacturer and for the consumer. By using rubber powder, which is a secondary raw material, the maker has an economic advantage: he can lower both production and maintenance costs. The user also gains many advantages. Safety is the major one. The tires improve their adherence while driving on rubber asphalt. Even tire life is longer because the surface is less rough. Further, the environment achieves a huge benefit. Effectively, by using rubber dust there is less demand for virgin raw materials and less energy consumption to source them, in a time period where using green energy is essential.


Rubber compounds

The same advantages seen on rubber asphalt are relevant even in new tires' compounds outcome. That is to say, less demand for raw materials, less production cost and advantages for the environment. In 2009 the RMA, Rubber Manufacturer Association delivered a study in which they focused on the presence of rubber powder in new products we use everyday. They concluded that rubber particles do not represent any risk to human health if used to produce new objects.

Rubber powder means renewability

Rubber Powder Production Line

Renewability is the keyword to define those products sourced from recycled materials, like rubber dust in our case. Due to a more efficient system of waste tires collection and recycling, precious secondary raw materials are reused avoiding the risk to pollute the environment. Moreover, there is less demand for virgin raw materials and oil-based feed-stocks, saving energy and reducing greenhouse gases.


How to make rubber powder

With the development of the automobile industry and transportation industry in the world, a large number of discarded tires will be produced every year, which will lead to serious environmental problems. But on the other hand, waste tires are a potential recyclable resource, which can bring benefits to people if properly handled. Based on this idea, Optima has developed a rubber powder production line designed to dispose of waste tires and rubber in a green and profitable way.


At present, the recycling of waste tires has been very common. We can use different tire recycling equipment to convert waste tires into fuel oil, rubber particles, rubber powder, etc. So, how do we get rubber powder from used tires? The answer is the rubber powder production line.


In fact, the waste tires into rubber powder is not a complex process, we need to understand the basic composition of the rubber powder machines. A complete set of rubber powder machines is mainly composed of wire drawing machines, tire cutting machines, tire shredding machines, coarse shredder, and rubber grinding machines.
