Rubber is among the most sophisticated and engineered man made materials on the planet. Rubber is designed to never degrade, decompose, or deteriorate. Unlike other commodities such as metal, plastic, glass, or wood, rubber cannot be returned to its original state economically. So, the processing and production of recycled rubber products is very difficult; however through the development of new, innovative technologies to process waste rubber into value added products ECORE has become the largest user of scrap tire rubber in the U.S.A., converting over 80 million pounds of tires annually into recycled rubber flooring.
Our capabilities include grinding, screening, removal of stone, wood, paper, fluff, fiber, and other materials from scrap tire rubber to produce exacting specifications that meet or exceed our customers internal, external, and ASTM specifications. With our state of the art equipment, experienced staff, and 100 million pound capacity, we are uniquely capable of producing the cleanest, most consistent, and highest quality material available in the market place.
Developing a rubber underlayment is simple, but developing a revolutionary fusion bond where the underlayment adheres to a wear layer is not. It takes time, years of dedication, and a lot of man-power to create a technology that has record-setting levels of recycled content, uses extreme technological advancement, and is completely original. By taking an already proven recycled rubber flooring system and marrying it to another proven flooring system (whether it is polyester, a polypropylene blend, or a resilient surface), the marriage will result in an unprecedented, durable flooring system.
The patent-pending itstru technology allows a wear layer to be fused to the 97% post-consumer recycled rubber backing. This creates a fusion-bonded product with anti-fatigue capabilities that meet and exceed all standards for low VOC emissions. Manufactured by ECORE International, a trusted leader for more than 20 years, this revolutionary technology allows for greater design diversity and more sustainable options for the education, health and fitness, retail, and healthcare space.
