  • Tire-derived polymer (TDP) and scrap-derived polymer (SDP) are re-engineered polymer masterbatch compounds that are thermo-mechanically devulcanized using patented technology that offers a recycled, sustainable polymer source for the rubber industry. These devulcanized materials are high quality, engineered materials that have the capability of being used in higher quantities than other more common recycled polymers without a corresponding loss in physical properties. This study evaluates TDP in an NR off-road tire compound, in an SBR conveyor belt formulation, and SDP in an EPDM roofing compound application for physical properties and costs compared to non-sustainable options.
