Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9901266A1] A method of reclaiming rubber from the sidewall (20) of a vehicle tyre wherein successive sectors (26) of the sidewall are supported in sequence so the internal surface of the sector is substantially flat and presenting the external surface of said supported sector to a plurality of cutters (27). Each cutter is arranged to operate over substantially the full radial extent of the sector to reduce the thickness of the external rubber of the sidewall to substantially the level of the sidewall reinforcement. This operation is repeated along the full extent of peripheral side wall.
