closed loop recycling

Traditional synthetic rubber materials were originally created for industrial applications. They were never truly intended for mass-produced consumer products. So they’re not made to be recycled or to break down in landfills. Ariaprene was specifically designed to be reused many times. You can cycle the manufacturing scraps back to the next generation product or create something entirely new. And once the waste reaches maximum processing, it will safely decompose in a landfill.
