This material is processed by stand alone equipment separate from our virgin elastomers processing plant. Our granulating and milling plant is very adaptable, if you have a material that you would prefer granulated or powdered but are unsure if it can be – send a sample to us for a free of charge evaluation.

We can provide test grindings of larger quantities at a nominal cost.Bale cutting is a growing part of our business as Health and Safety awareness on Manual Handling issues grows, you can improve the H&S at your facility by having your bales cut to sizes that fall within the manual handling guidelines set by HSE.
