Tire Log™ New Green Building Material


Product / Service Description

The Tire Log™ is a patented innovation made from waste tires with a unique and energy efficient approach to recycling tires. RTP's process "upcycles" the waste tire and takes full advantage of the embedded energy in tires that is wasted in conventional tire recycling that primarily involves the grinding, burying or burning of waste tires.

Due to its resistance to decay, along with the Tire Logs™ energy absorbing, "bends but doesn't break" characteristics, the Tire Log™ has proven superior to conventional building materials for many construction applications. The Tire Log™ may have its most profound value in areas that are prone to earthquakes or other extreme forces such as wave action, explosions or vehicle impacts. RTP has demonstrated the viability of using the Tire Log™ for many different commercial applications that include erosion and flood control, levees, retaining walls, sea walls, barricades for highway safety as well as security and military applications.
