One of the most important recycled materials is granulated rubber, which is used in artificial grass pitches, riding tracks and asphalt. Ragn-Sells Tyrerecycling is both a manufacturer and a supplier of granulated rubber
How we make rubber granulate
Every year, Ragn-Sells Tyre Recycling collects over 150,000 tonnes of discarded tires in Norway and Sweden. Our factory in Heljestorp (near Vänersborg) in Sweden is perfectly placed to transform tires collected in Norway and Sweden into rubber granulates, and to serve the most important markets with our recycled materials.
At the factory in Heljestorp we sort the tires before they are grinded in pieces. Then fine-grind the pieces while removing gravel, studs and other metal residues until only rubber granules remain. Only tires collected in Norway and Sweden are used in the process, and we conduct regular analyzes of the material.
Our rubber granulate is available in three different qualities:
Fine rubber granulate (0-1.2 mm): For example, used in silent asphalt, as an additive in the production of rubber products or as fuel refining in the melting of iron.
Medium rubber granulate (1-2.8 mm): Used primarily as a damping filler material in artificial turf.
Coarse rubber granulate (2.5-4 mm): Used as supportive material under artificial turf tracks, as underlay on riding tracks and as bullet collectors on shooting ranges.
Rubber granulate from Ragn-Sells Tyre Recycling is delivered in Big Bags of approxomately 1,07 tons
