Tirecycle™ Rubbers

NorthStar Elastomers, LLC, manufactures and markets several forms of Tirecycle™, for different purposes and markets. TC 1301 is an activating adhesive polymer, while TC 1302 for tires and MBS 800 for hoses are basic Tirecycle™ compounds. All can be tested and adjusted for your specific master batch manufacturing and performance needs.

The fundamental product is “a pre-cured, engineered, particulate elastomer with a coherent, homogeneous, reactive surface; ready to bond into any appropriate virgin rubber or master batch.” Tirecycle™ is upcycled, rejuvenated production waste or rubber crumb, performing as virgin replacement or equivalent. Made predominantly from tires, but EPDM, neoprene and many other rubbers and plastics will also work.
