A unique process now developed in Portugal.
What is rubber vulcanization?
The vulcanization process provides unique mechanical properties, but is not easily reversed. Rubberlink is one of the few industrial units that is able to reverse the vulcanization process of rubber, recycling it so that it can be used again – devulcanization.
What is rubber devulcanization?
Is devulcanized rubber really 100% recycled?
How is devulcanization done?
What types of rubber can be devulcanized?
What percentage of devulcanized rubber can be incorporated into a virgin rubber matrix?
What are the differences between virgin rubber and devulcanized rubber?
|Devulcanized rubber||8 to 18||5 to 6||300 to 350|
|Virgin rubber||12 to 28||5 to 7||400 to 800|
Rupture stress (MPa)
Devulcanized rubber – 8 to 18
Virgin rubber – 12 to 28
Tensile strength (MPa)
Devulcanized rubber – 5 to 6
Virgin rubber – 5 to 7
Stretching rupture (&)
Devulcanized rubber – 300 to 350
Virgin rubber – 400 to 800
