A Concrete Solution
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:Avon Maitland-Huron Perth

Abstract:During tire recycling, tire crumb and steel are removed; the remaining material is called Tire Fluff. In an attempt to find an end use for this material it was added to concrete. Tire Fluff from the Ambient and Cryogenic recycling processes were tested in varying amounts and compared to traditional concrete. Concrete with tire fluff exhibited a unique ductile characteristic not found in traditional concrete.
