Companies also are eager to take advantage of the fact that Lehigh’s products are sustainable and environmentally impactful. By incorporating micronized natural rubber powders into products at higher levels, manufacturers can get out in front of the curve in the development of sustainable products and position their company as leading edge in "green" manufacturing.
Lehigh’s commitment to helping solve the environmental challenge of tire waste material was recently acknowledged by The World Economic Forum, naming the company a 2010 Technology Pioneer. This annual award is given to companies involved in the development of life-changing technology that has the potential for long-term impact on business and society.
Lehigh Technologies’ proprietary manufacturing process takes tire and other post-industrial rubber material and "upcycles" it into micron-scale, high quality, sustainable powders that are compatible with customers’ existing formulations, making it easy to integrate into new or existing products. These powders not only help companies achieve sustainability goals, but can also improve performance attributes such as water resistance, energy savings and flexibility, while delivering significant costs savings over virgin raw materials.
