Type of Industry : Rubber Products
Products: 'Recy Block' blocks for recycled elastic pavement
Motohama came up with the idea of recycling discarded rubber as part of the effective use of resources and developed 'Recy Block' (recycled blocks) to make effective use of waste rubber from old tires, etc. This new type of elastic block is made of chips of recycled rubber that are bonded together using polyurethane and then molded into shape under pressure. We also have a system for re-recycling used Recy Blocks to ensure optimum use of resources when the pavement needs to be replaced.
Focusing on Our Technology: Recy Blocks have excellent cushioning properties so they reduce the risk of industry to people jumping and twisting, as well as people who fall. The main layer of rubber helps to reduce foot fatigue, and it is very strong because it is molded under pressure. It is an excellent surface for walking or playing after rain because it allows water to pass through instead of forming puddles, and the surface does not become slippery. It also helps to preserve the environment due to the above-mentioned rainwater reduction properties. The lower layer consists of the chips of recycled rubber and the upper, surface layer consists of bright chips of colored rubber. The color does not get rubbed off or lose its brilliance. Two types are available: a mat type that is easy to install and maintain, and a adhesive-backed type that is light and economical. There are also hard and soft versions that can be selected to match the installation location. The hard version is suitable for a wide range of applications, such as golf courses, roads for automobile traffic, and walkways. The soft version is available in a wide selection of colors and designs, and is suitable for use in hospitals, schools, kindergartens, and social welfare facilities. Many special pictures and patterns are available for decorative use as well.
Company Focus and Activities: Recy Blocks have been used in parks in the U.S. military base in Iwakuni. We are currently developing products suitable for home entranceways.
