Pitch Production from Mixtures of Coal Tar and Rubber Crumbs
- 9 Downloads
To expand the range of materials from which coal pitch may be produced, the interaction of coal tar with rubber crumbs from discarded tires is investigated. Ultrasound treatment of a tar–crumb mixture and subsequent oxidation in air at 240–360°C may be used to produce an analog of coal pitch (binder) and a light fraction. The binder characteristics may be regulated in terms of the softening temperature, which is determined by the duration of oxidation.
