The Tyre Stewardship Fund is actively supporting a range of new product and market developments, committed to the research and development, and demonstration of these new applications.
These products range in application from horse racing tracks, local roads, residential concrete slabs and as a composite material which has endless manufacturing possibilities. These are only a sample of the solutions being generated through the Tyre Stewardship Fund.
To highlight these products TSA has developed a range of case study videos to demonstrate the range of applications these can be used in and also the products features and benefits.
TSA & Polymeric Powders: Rubber-Plastic Composite
TSA funded project with the Polymeric Powders to develop and test a rubber crumb and plastic composite. Product injection moulded into non-pressure pipe. This new composite material has very desirable properties, when compared to traditional plastics. The new composite material can also be use in 3D printing.
TSA & University of SA: Crumb Rubber Concrete
TSA funded project with the University of South Australia to test that reinforced crumb rubber concrete is an economically viable and sustainable alternative to conventional reinforced concrete for residential structural engineering applications.
TSA & City of Mitcham - Crumb Rubber Asphalt
TSA funded project with the City of Mitcham in South Australia to test the benefits of crumb rubber asphalt over expansive clay soils to provide longer life and less maintenance.
TSA & Flexiroc : Equine Air Porous Rubberised Concrete Pavement
TSA funded project with Flexiroc. Trialing Equine Air, the new porous pavement system that uses recycled rubber from tyres and concrete.
TSA & Lomwest Enterprises : C4M wall system
TSA Funded project with Lomwest Enterprises. C4M wall system using baled end-of-life tyres between concrete skins. C4m units are built in modules and can be used for retaining walls, sound barriers, river and blast walls, cyclone shelters and impact barriers.
