Tire shreds are the finished product after a whole scrap tire has been run through a low torque double shaft shear shredder. We have 2 sizes of tire shreds available. The most common size tire shred is a 2” nominal. We also have the ability to produce a 1 ½” minus tire shred. All of our tire shreds are screened to assure a consistent size of product. Both of our tire shred sizes meet or exceed the American Standards for Testing Materials and have a designation number of ASTM 6270. Tire shreds are a lightweight material, and a lightweight material equals significant savings in freight costs compared to heavier traditional materials. There are a wide array of uses for tire shreds, ranging from alternative fuels, replacement for aggregates, drainage material, insulation, and lightweight fill.
Tire bales are a solid compressed block of scrap waste tires. Each tire bale is made up of 89-110 passenger and light truck tires. One tire bale weighs 2,000 lbs., or one ton. The dimensions of the tire bales are: 60” long, 50” wide, and 30” tall. There are five 9-gauge steel wires that hold the tire bale together. Each tire bale can sustain 375,000 lbs of pressure before any failure will occur.
Rubber wattles are the same product as a gravel or rock wattle, with two key differences. The rubber wattles are filled with 100% recycled tire shreds, making this a green product, and the rubber wattles are half the weight of a rock wattle, which allows for quicker and easier installation. The rubber wattles will perform just as well as rock wattle in drainage applications. This product works great for inlet protection and sediment control applications.
