Tyre wire is used in the production of new tyres, giving the necessary strength to withstand bumps, heat and other hazardous conditions. Thus the quality of the steel needed has to ensure the tyre is safe, tyre manufacturers know this, and therefore they never compromise on the quality of the steel. Consequently reclaimed tyre wire is of a very high quality and conforms to well know standards.
After the tyres have been crushed to below 25mm the steel can be extracted using a series of electro overband magnets. The steel we produce is to a very high standard - Less than five percent (<5%) rubber/fibre (ISRI 279), and therefore extremely suitable for re smelting. The steel fraction can be shipped loose or compressed to a density of approximately 800 kg/m3 compared to the standard 300 kg/m3, enabling better storage and cheaper transport and handling.
