Rubber is a natural resource that has been used widely all over the world for a very long time, to serve a variety of purposes. Rubber is normally available in two forms, natural and synthetic. The natural rubber is obtained from plants and the synthetic rubber is manufactured through the process of polymerization. The extraction of both natural and synthetic rubber is expensive and long processes. Also, the toxic and detrimental chemical properties of rubber are increasingly becoming a point of concern for environmentalists, due to the regular dumping of waste rubber in rivers and landfills contaminating the soil and water.
These are reasons enough to stop producing rubber, but with its presence in almost every sphere of industrialization, this is not possible. Another alternative, which also happens to be ecologically a brilliant prospect, is to reuse waste rubber. Reusable or reclaimed rubber has some very useful properties that can be effectively harnessed for a number of different uses.
Some of these properties are briefly described below-
These qualities give recycled rubber an edge over synthetically and naturally prepared rubber, because-
Recycled rubber can easily substitute normal and synthetic rubber for a variety of purposes. Some products made from recycled rubber are-
By reclaiming and re-using rubber, we are not only creating better, more innovative products but also taking a huge step towards the preservation of the environment. Do not throw rubber away, recycle it!. Swani Rubber Industries manufactures quality reclaim rubber and their quality of reclaimed rubber is exceptional than other companies.
