Great Lakes Rubber offers new sustainable rubber using recycled material

Great Lakes Rubber is excited to offer our first truly “green” rubber compound: SustainSBR-55. Helping make sustainable rubber a reality and supporting our commitment to the circular economy, this SBR compound uses 51% recyclate material. Using SustainSBR-55 helps reduce unnecessary landfilling and lowers greenhouse gas emissions, power consumption and water usage. SustainSBR-55 is a less expensive, more sustainable alternative for virgin SBR compounds.

See if you can use this today on your products and help save the world one rubber product at a time. The SustainSBR-55 specification sheet can be found on the Resources page of our website.

Great Lakes Rubber continues to contribute to a circular economy

For many years, manufacturing at GLR has taken the “green” initiative by ensuring all of its rubber waste is truly never wasted. Scrap from manufacturing processes are given second life as GLR works with rubber recycling facilities to re-purpose the material into things like cushioning for track fields and playgrounds. Currently, over 100,000 pounds of rubber avoids the landfill per year thanks to these recycling efforts.
