Carbon black is an essential reinforcing filler in rubber products, particularly in tire manufacturing. This black powder is produced through the incomplete combustion or thermal decomposition of heavy petroleum products.
Carbon black strengthens rubber’s mechanical properties, such as tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and durability, by forming a reinforcing network within the rubber matrix. It also adds UV resistance and provides the characteristic black color. Incorporating carbon black into rubber products greatly improves their overall performance and longevity.
Arduro’s recovered carbon black (rCB) is a sustainable alternative to virgin carbon black, obtained through our patented, proprietary recovery process. Our third-party, independent testing trials have demonstrated that ELDARIX™ r1000 is potentially suitable for various tire, automotive, industrial rubber goods, inks, coatings, and plastic applications.
Choosing ELDARIX™ r1000 allows manufacturers to reduce reliance on fossil fuels, lower their carbon footprint, and contribute to a circular economy while maintaining product performance and quality.Request a sample
Tire manufacturing uses different types of rubber to create high-performance, durable, and safe tires. There are two main types of rubber: natural rubber, from trees, and synthetic rubber, made from petroleum. The most common synthetic rubbers in tire making are styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) and butadiene rubber (BR). Each type has its unique properties and characteristics, which are used in various rubber compound components within the tire.
Manufacturers choose the right combination to achieve the best balance of grip, wear resistance, rolling resistance, and overall performance for different driving situations and uses.
Our breakthrough technology enables us to recover rubber that is not only environmentally friendly but also molecularly identical to oil-produced rubber. This ensures our recovered rubber maintains the comparable performance and reliability expected from virgin rubber grades.
We’re currently conducting further independent lab trials and scale-up trials to validate the quality and performance of our recovered rubber. These trials will provide additional evidence to support our recycled rubber’s exceptional characteristics, reinforcing its suitability for a wide range of applications across various industries.
Arduro has completed its initial testing programs and will soon announce the expected timeframe for the availability of samples. If you’re interested in participating in our trial program please reach out to your sales team.Contact Us
Silica in the rubber industry
Silica is a vital reinforcing filler in the rubber industry, especially for green tire tread applications in electric vehicles, offering a unique combination of high tear strength, high modulus, fatigue resistance, low rolling resistance, and superior wet traction.
