14.1. Introduction

It is possible to produce thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs) based on ground rubber waste from tires, waste EPDM rubber, butadiene-acrylonitrile rubber (NBR), recycled rubber latex waste, and waste plastics. A multitude of studies were made with the goal to prepare thermoplastic materials with more or less elastic properties from blends of ...
