On May 8, before the conference and exhibition will commence, there will be an opportunity to join an offsite tour of Lehigh Technologies in Tucker, GA. The tour to Lehigh’s 60,000 ton/year facility will be divided into several parts:

  • Applications development laboratory
  • Incoming raw material
  • Cryogenic production lines
  • Finished products

Lehigh Technologies staff members will be onsite to take questions regarding their facility and products.

A reception will follow the tour where you will have the opportunity to network with other tire industry professionals, before the conference begins. Register today and add the Offsite Tour to your Traction Summit registration.

More about Lehigh facility

Lehigh Technologies is a chemical company producing highly engineered, versatile raw materials called micronized rubber powders (MRP). MRP can replace oil- and rubber-based feedstock in a wide range of applications. Lehigh transforms scrap into high-value products and thereby it contributes to the concept of circular economy and provides a sustainable solution to the problem of waste tires and other waste rubber. Lehigh’s products are divided into two major rubber powder lines: PolyDyne™ and MicroDyne™ – which range from 830 microns to 50 microns in size. Lehigh uses cryogenic turbo mill technology to produce their goods from end-of-life tires and post-industrial rubber. Apart form that, Lehigh has a number of innovative compounds such as: Enduraprene™, EkoDyne™, Rheopave™ and Zenoflex™.

Lehigh’s products find their further use in tires, plastics, asphalt, coatings and construction materials. whereas Whereas many of the largest tire and industrial companies throughout the world purchase MRPs and compounds, Lehigh’s Application and Development Center carries out researches to expand MRP’s scope of applications.

To attend the tour of the Lehigh’s plant, you must be a paid attendee of the Traction Summit 2017 conference. Limited spaces.
