Nylon Fibre from Recycled Tyres
Nearly 15% of the recycled tyre is composed of nylon fibre that is often called fibrous "fluff". In modern tyres, this fibre is mainly composed of Polyester that is used to enhance the tyre performance and quality. Fibre from recycled tyres find many applications such as construction mixes like concrete and stucco. It is also used as a clean up material as the fibre is highly absorbent and it is often used in carpets as a underlay. Fibre is also used as a filling for sound dampening, as well as a reinforcing additive for rubber, plastic and composite materials. Recycled fibres from S&J are of the highest quality. The company produces 250 metric tonnes of Nylon scrap a month.
