With all the recommended equipment working at full capacity 24 hours daily, the plant will produce 100 Million "lb." or 50,000 MT of XYZ TM
The tire shredding unit can process up to 500 car tires/ hour (2.5+ million tires per year and it needs just 20 hours/day for the volume required for the XYZ TM final estimated volume.
Traditional require area is 10,000 M2 to allow expansion and indoor storage.
TPE stands for thermoplastic elastomers, which are materials with both thermoplastic and elastomeric properties. This allows TPEs to obtain the major advantages of both rubbery and plastic materials
TPEs derive their thermoplastic abilities from the type of plastic used in their formation. This allows the material to become malleable when heated and hardened once cooled. Elastomers are polymers with viscoelasticity meaning they exhibit both viscous and elastic characteristics when undergoing deformation. Viscous materials resist shear flow and strain linearly with time when stress is applied. Elastic materials strain when stretched and immediately return to their original state once the stress is removed
TPEs are the perfect material for several products. They have a soft touch that is appealing and beneficial because they can be easily molded or extruded onto hard thermoplastic goods such as tools and equipment.
Additionally, they bond well to many common thermoplastic substrates like polypropylene and can also be used to make soft baby spoons or toddler cup spouts.
TPEs can be designed to be biocompatible, have high purity, and have low levels of extractable and leachable substances. This allows for their use in the medical field, once sterilized TPEs can be an alternative to latex, silicone, PVC, or rubber.
Sealing rings and bottle cap liners have traditionally been made out of thermoset rubbers but TPEs are more efficient to process, use less energy, and can be produced faster.
