Research output: Conference contribution


Various flame retardant, recycled ground rubber containing compounds were prepared in a polyethylene-ethylene vinyl acetate blend matrix with the help of a reactive surfactant. The beneficial effect of ground rubber was demonstrated on the flame retardancy, noise damping, and environmental impact of the compounds.
