Henderson, Nevada -- Magnum D'Or Resources, Inc. said it has received positive results from trials of its retread compound using recycled rubber. The compound was jointly developed by Magnum and its technology partner Sekhar Research Innovations. Test results are now being evaluated by several large scale manufacturers in the Indian, Chinese and Southeast Asian markets.
Magnum/SRI collectively created the compound in a joint development project from whole tyre crumb supplied by the Company's fine rubber powder. To create the Compound, forty mesh tyre dust was devulcanised through the SRI Activation process, and was subsequently compounded and treated with next generation processing aids. The Compound was then blended with medium quality regional virgin retread compound, without any adjustment or alteration, to produce the tested product.
The developers created several different compound variations, beginning at five percent recycled content, and increasing in one percent increments, to up to twenty percent recycled content. The Compound was tested through several methods, and the results suggest that the Compound will be acceptable for a wide spectrum of proportions, ranging from the tested five percent up to the twenty percent compound substitution, testing included abrasion resistance testing.
