    • A comparative study of natural rubber modified with ground tire rubber of truck 

      Binti Haridan, Ili Liyana (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-10-20)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      The recycling of waste rubber has considerable significance in term of environmental protection and energy conservation. Considering that most of the relevant literature is concerned with tire recycling, the aim of this ...

      Open Access
      Un problema medioambiental grave, que nos afecta a los países industrializados desde hace años, lo cons-tituye el uso masivo de neumáticos, los cuales una vez utilizados, generan grandes existencias de ma-terial de residuo. ...
    • Manufacturing and characterization of materials obtained by reactivated/devulcanized Ground Tire Rubber (GTR) blended with Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) 

      Binti Norazman, Ainur Safia Nabihah (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2015-06-22)
      Bachelor thesis
      Open Access
      Ground tire rubber (GTR) was vulcanized in different composition with styrene butadiene rubber (SBR). Ground tire rubbers used in this project are i) not devulcanized (nd) ii) mechanically devulcanized (dm) iii) ...
