Thus, at present, a large amount of rubber waste cannot be higher harnessed due to recovery technologies used. Also, the requirements for new products of rubber worldwide are greater than the production capacity and the availability of raw materials. To offset this balance is necessary to improve technologies for recycling waste rubber so to can get regenerated rubber with the best mechanical physical characteristics. The main technology for obtaining the regenerated rubber is based on the rubber waste shredding and making the powder, so that it can be carried out de-vulcanization in autoclave. All the time it was monitored as the de-vulcanization process to be as economical and less polluting, and this requires that the sizes of the crumb rubber to be optimal. Thus, in the conducted researches was aimed to establish the particle size of crumb rubber from waste rubber so as to obtain an economical de-vulcanization, but also a reclaimed rubber with superior physical and mechanical characteristics. The organization of researches was made so that crumb of rubber waste was divided into 5 groups, bowing from crumb rubber with particle’s size of 1000 μm (RPS1), and reaching up to crumb rubber with particle’s size of 200 μm (RPS 5).
