Composition cork consists of binder that is typically the natural resins in cork or other special polymeric binders. These binders coat each particle of cork and are joined together under pressure to form a solid mass. This may be either in block form that is then cut into sheet material or in log form to produce continuous rolls of product.
Cork/rubber production involves the introduction of rubber into the cork composition. This can also be molded into blocks for sheeting or pressed into continuous roll forms.
Ecore Industrial rubber products are produced by combining recycled SBR rubber granules with a polyurethane polymer in large cylinders. The result is a polymerically bound cylinder of recycled rubber that can be peeled into rolls or molded into various shapes to fit specific project needs.
Reclaimed Rubber is Ecore International’s primary raw material for all-rubber products. The scrap tires are cleaned to remove fiber, metal, and other impurities and is ground to specified sizes for use in manufacturing. One widely used component of tires is SBR (Styrene-Butadiene Rubber). Its manufacture involves copolymerization of butadiene and styrene, generally in a 3 to 1 ratio.
