Abstract

A single screw extruder was used to pulverize vulcanized natural rubber, ground tire tread and polyurethane foam granulates in the solid state into fine particles under high compression and shear. This process, known as Solid State Shear Extrusion (SSSE) pulverization, is a non-cryogenic mechano-chemical process and has the capability to produce particles having diameters ranging from a few microns to about 1500 microns. This study focuses not only on the pulverization experiments of the cross-linked materials but also on the fundamentals of pulverization using the SSSE process.
