Patent Number: 6,169,128

Title: Plastic/rubber composition

Abstract: By employing the present invention, a process for manufacturing products from discarded rubber and plastic material is achieved wherein compositions of vulcanized rubber and thermoplastic polymers, particularly those of the olefinic branch, are intermixed with a bonding agent to produce a processable compound having a combination of unique and unexpected properties. In the present invention, a unique bonding agent comprising a combination of ethylene co-polymers, ethylene-octane and acrylic acid is employed. By employing this bonding agent with the rubber particular and thermoplastic material, all of the prior art drawbacks are eliminated and a unique, desirable, highly useful composition is produced.
