Rubber powder from Genan is sustainably recycled rubber powder with particles < 1000 μm (18 Mesh).
Genan rubber powder can be added to compounds and used in the production of many different products. The Genan technologies – ambient granulation and cryogenic milling – both produce very fine crumb rubber.
For ambient powders (rubber powders manufactured at room temperature), we use a mix of passenger car tires, truck tires and off-the-road (OTR) tires as feedstock.
For cryogenic powders (micronized rubbers powders manufactured in a cryogenic milling process), we use truck tires only.
Genan rubber powder can be used for numerous different applications. Manufacturers of rubber products can substitute a percentage of the virgin rubber used in their rubber compounds with cost-saving rubber crumb made from recycled end-of-life tires – thereby adding an element of sustainability to their production.
RUBBER POWDER FOR ROAD CONSTRUCTION
For road construction, Genan offers an elastomer bitumen and asphalt modifier called ROAD+ PREMIXED. This product consists of both rubber powder, GENAN FINE POWDER, and a special elastomer, Vestenamer®.
ROAD+ PREMIXED is used in rubber modification of asphalt and bitumen in road pavement construction – as well as for roofing purposes.
The Genan rubber powders are listed below. As standard products, we offer three different ambient powders – and three different cryogenic powders.
Links to safety data sheets, technical data sheets, information on applications and sustainability are also available.
GENAN AMBIENT RUBBER POWDER
Genan rubber powder is produced using conventional ambient process technology, where tire rubber is mechanically shredded, granulated and milled. Genan offers three types of ambiently manufactured rubber powder – with different particle size distributions.
GENAN COARSE POWDER is a high-quality rubber powder with particle sizes between 0.5 and 0.8 mm.

GENAN COARSE POWDER is available in Super Sacks holding approx. 2,200 lbs. or in 55 lbs. sacks.
GENAN CRYOGENIC RUBBER POWDER
In Genan’s cryogenic process technology, liquid nitrogen is used to freeze rubber granulate to a low temperature so that milling results in a finely micronized rubber powder with a particle surface much smoother than any that can be achieved with ambient technology. Cryogenically milled / micronized rubber powder is available in sizes smaller than 40 mesh (ASTM) or 425 microns.
