An urban heat island is an area that's significantly warmer than surrounding rural areas because land development uses materials that retain heat – such as asphalt.
But rubberized asphalt's porous top layer cools down quicker than conventional asphalt, cooling our roads and diminishing urban heat island effects.
Products of Tireless Work
The improved function and long-lasting characteristics of recycled rubber bring quality to customers’ product lines while serving the important function of reaching conservation goals.
As manufacturers discover the inherent value of recycled rubber and embrace the environmental impact of recycling, scrap tires continue to be shredded and ground into various sizes of powders, crumbs and nuggets for use in more and more products.
Much of the recycled rubber produced by Liberty Tire is used as crumb rubber and industrial feedstock for manufacturers, as tire derived fuel for use in industry, or as rubber mulch in landscaping and playground applications.
