Project summary

The aim of the proposed research is to recycle the rubber crumb by γ pre-irradiation. Irradiation-assisted recycling of rubber crumb has been widely studied. The vast majority of these studies are realized by post-irradiation after mixing the rubber crumb in the matrix material. Pre-irradiation can be similarly effective as post-irradiation; it is a more economical solution and can be more easily introduced into the industry.
