RKN offers state-of-the-art devulcanization technology for the recycling of scrap rubber. The technology is based on the most reliable thermo-mechanical process which combines the advantages of:
→ continuous manufacturing, resulting more convenient and industrially stable compared to batch production
→ selective breaking of compound crosslinks with high efficiency without use of any chemical additive
→ excellent product quality with unmatched mechanical properties.
Thanks to the excellent mechanical properties of the compounds processed with this technology, the devulcanized compounds can be used as polymer or filler for the production of a broad range of technical rubber products. Their use might have a crucial share in compound cost-optimization and solve some environmental issues related to scrap disposal and related costs.
