Tire Tech: Micronised Rubber comes to the fore at industry exhibition in Hannover.
Micronised Rubber Wins Allies
At the 2019 Tire Tech Exhibition in Hannover, micronised rubber made an impression on the tyre industry. The growth of interest in micronised rubber was sparked by Michelin’s purchase of LeHigh. The barrier was smashed and the doors were opened to the product.
Not only did LeHigh’s Kadar Murthy moderate and present at the recycled rubber seminar, but he was joined by Tinna Rubber’s Guarev Sekhar and Arun Kapoor who presented their experience in ambient produced micronized rubber.
Micronised rubber powder is now making its mark and Murthy told the audience that some 500 million tyres had now been produced using a percentage of micronised rubber.
