Aquajet Ltd. manufactures secondary raw material from end-of-life tires with a revolutionary new technology.The end-product is fine rubber powder (in the range of 30-400 microns).The reinforcing metal parts of the tires remain intact, thus the fine powder is not contaminated by steel.AquaJet’s fine rubber powder:
Poprietary process of milling whole tires with ultra high pressure (UHP) water jets
Ability for direct revulcanization, immediate applicability in manufacturing of new rubber products, substitutes NR /synthetic components
With lowest ecological impact, the rubber powder produced is arguably the best rubber recyclate available
Aquajet is a novel approach to recycle tires into small-enough, high-quality rubber particles for reuse in tire products. The successful scaling up of the process shows potential for the future. Recycling and more specifically recycling of tires into quality products, as opposed to heat generation, will become more important in the years to come.

We recognize the quality of the work done to develop an optimized rubber powder and to enable its use as a raw material in rubber mixes, thus contributing to the preservation of the environment.
senior tire research specialist, Michelin
With sustainability on every tire company’s agenda, Aquajet’s technology is very much of its time. Having been steadily developed over several years, the renewed investment it received in 2015 proves that it is on the right track.
