Rubber, steel and nylon

RENEWED RAW MATERIALS

Automotive tyres contain valuable raw materials, which are completely recycled by Granuflex’s parent company, Granuband. Most people are aware that rubber constitutes a key ingredient in automotive tyres, but how many realise that tyres also contain high-quality steel and nylon?

Nylon

Nylon recovered from tyres is not only durable, it is also of a high quality. This fully circular raw material can be used, for example, as filling for high-quality furniture, or for punching bags. 

Granuflex offers this recycled nylon in several quality levels and we will be more than happy to advise you on the appropriate quality level for your application.

Steel needles

An automotive tyre could not be used safely if it didn’t have a steel casing. Granuband has developed a method for fully recycling this steel, to a high quality. The steel needles marketed by Granuflex have already led to some surprisingly innovative applications. They are used, for example, to reinforce the safes of ATMs. What could you use this steel for? We’ll be pleased to help you decide which steel-needle quality will best suit your project or product.


Rubber granulate
 
The rubber granulate that Granuband recovers from end-of-life automotive tyres is of such high quality that, in many applications, it can compete with “virgin” (new) rubber. Marketed under the name, Granuflex, it is available in various qualities, from extremely fine, almost powdery particles between 0 and 0.8mm to coarser grains of 8mm. Innovative manufacturers are using Granuflex granulate as a raw material for the production of things that include roof coverings, in-situ floors and sports-related layers. But it can also be used to make rubber products, such as tiles and ladder mats. We’ll be more than happy to inspire you with many more of the high-quality applications that our granulate is suitable for.
