Recycled vulcanizate particulate rubber is important in rubber compounding. It allows the rubber compounder to add a certain percentage of rubber filler back into its parent or similar compounds or to use the material as substitute or stand alone compound. Its use may lower compound costs or improve performance characteristics, or both.
Many types of recycled vulcanizate particulate rubber are available, with the number of types of vulcanizate particulate rubber limited only by the number of parent compounds.
Use of recycled rubber has a positive environmental impact.View Less
1.1 This classification covers the compounding material commercially known as recycled vulcanized particulate rubber. Recycled vulcanized particulate rubber is the product that results when vulcanizate rubber has been processed by some means to obtain a desired particle size distribution.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
