Green Car Project Ready for 2010

A Labour of Love

The idea was to take a classic performance car, bring it back to optimum condition, if not slightly better and then change all the rubber components in it to ones with substantial recycled content in the form of my SRI Activated Compounds. Targeting more than potentially 200 components, no fillers or diluents but substitution of one compound for another in proportions ranging from 5% to 30% plus, subject to the application and required performance parameters. The final product performance exhibiting no appreciable loss off properties or performance. The car may be a classic but its performance specs at every level require high performance rubber components and by extension sophisticated compounds even by today’s standards, so whatever works here is equal to anything on the road anywhere.

14% Recycled Content and Being Evaluated as Virgin Compound!

With SRI Test Light Truck ready for tire measurements at RRI Tire Lab

21st of October 2009 another historic day, light truck tires produced using my activated compound (Magnum SRI custom compound) establishing a 14% recycled content and ensuring the manufacturer a 6% to 8% savings in raw material cost. After having run the tires successfully through several lifetimes (30,000km), official on road measurement and validation trials started today using our tires installed on a light truckĀ  under the supervision and protocol of the Rubber Research Institute. We will be reporting the results of the evaluations as they come out, obviously we are expecting the results to be quite exciting and reflective of the laboratory test results.
