Tyre Recycling | Trade Expo

Jifeng International Tyre Recycling was formed in late 2005 in order to establish South Africa’s newest and most up to date tyre recycling facility in Cape Town, SA.

As well as operating the most modern tyre recycling facility in South Africa, SA Tyre Recyclers works closely with local authorities and government bodies looking at recycling issues and environmental matters regarding post-consumer tyres.

The recycling capacity of the SA Tyre Recyclers plant is around 10,000 tonnes per annum which means around 1 million tyres of mixed sizes and types. With millions of tyres being discarded each year, the industry of tyre recycling has never been as vital.

This state of the art tyre recycling plant is located in an Industrial park and covers 25 000 sq meters

Athletics Tracks

Rubber granules are mixed with polyurethane binder and then painted to produce running surfaces. The use of recycled rubber provides assistance with impact absorption, increase in performance and injury reduction.

Building Insulation

Mixed with a polyurethane binder, recycled rubber granules are rolled into noise-reducing insulation. These rubber matting insulations are especially used in units and apartments, under flooring and in walls for reducing and isolating noise. The use of a waterproof flexible binder also provides protection from the elements.

Playground Surfaces

Recycled rubber is used in Play Safe surfaces, such as children’s playgrounds, to lower the force of impact and reduce injuries. These durable and low-maintenance surfaces are also porous, allowing them to perform even in the harshest South African weather climate.

Brake Shoes

Granulate rubber crumb is used in asbestos-free brake shoes. the rubber component reduces noise and improves wear. The use of heat-resistant rubber instead of asbestos-based materials is a  developing technology in South Africa. As well as lowering noise and improving wear, this product also minimises dust output to a degree to enhance vehicle appearance.

Matting Surfaces

A variety of matting products are made from recycled rubber, for both internal and external use, in both commercial and domestic use. These include non-slip door mats, marine surfaces and mats for workshops and kitchens. The mats are hardwearing, weather resistant and can be washed easily.

Tarred Roads

Recycled rubber granules are added to paint coating, providing grip in areas the may become slippery in treacherous marine conditions, covered areas include walkways of boats or strips that are applied to the edges of stairs.

Marine Non-Slip

Recycled rubber granules are added to paint coating, providing grip in areas the may become slippery in treacherous marine conditions, covered areas include walkways of boats or strips that are applied to the edges of stairs.

New Tyre

Added to passenger and forklift tyres (solid), recycled rubber is mixed with uncured rubber as a predictable filling compound prior to baking. This reduces the use of new materials and lowers the cost of manufacture.

Tile Adhesive

Recycled rubber is becoming more commonly used in tile adhesives, allowing the adhesive to retain a great deal of the the flexible properties of cured rubber. This additional flexibility also prevents the tiles from cracking, which is caused by buildings movement over time, and also provides important water-resistant and sound dampening properties.

Sport Surfaces

Recycled rubber is used under synthetic grass for softness, particularly useful for sporting grounds. The grass is often injected directly into the recycled rubber and a polyurethane binder. Also in combination with silica sand, a layer of rubber granulate is used to hold the synthetic grass strands upright when layed onto the pitch.
