Abstract
Mass production of tyres and their subsequent storage after use is a serious environmental problem whose solution has been attempted in various ways. One of these is the mixture of old, used tyres (GTR) with various thermoplastic and thermostable polymers. These blends are made by modifying the pre-treatment to which the GTR is subjected, the degree of devulcanization, the mixing or pressing conditions, etc. Later, the mixtures are analyzed structurally and mechanically, looking for possible ind...
