Toronto-based NRI Industries supplies grades of thermoplastic elastomers containing up to 50 percent recycled tire crumb. Symar-T grades of TPE offer processors a cost savings of 40 to 50 percent, in comparison to virgin TPE grades such as Santoprene, according to Russell Bula, vice president sales and marketing at NRI. Symar-T resins are designed to be processed on standard equipment for extrusion, injection molding, blow molding and thermoforming. The materials are suitable for a range of transportation, industrial, consumer and household applications. Typical applications are automotive under-hood parts such as wire harness boots, air deflectors and splash guards.
