GENAN PELLETS are made from Genan rubber powder from end-of-life tyres. Pellets are a most homogeneous product – manufactured with a specific diameter and cut off to a specific length. The diameter of GENAN PELLETS 4.2 / 5 is Ø4.2 mm, and pellets are 5 mm long.
When pellets are laid out, cavities inevitably arise, ensuring excellent water permeability, and creating the optimum conditions for the elastic properties and the energy absorption of the rubber pellets. As GENAN PELLETS are so uniform in shape, they have less surface area than traditional granulate. This results in low end-product bulk density, improved shock-absorption and minimum compaction.
Compared to traditional base layers made with granulate, base layers made with GENAN PELLETS require less material. Material savings may be up to 30% – for rubber as well as binder.
