Tyre bales are a solid compressed block of scrap waste tyres. Each tyre bale is tightly bound and weighs one ton and is made up of 100 used tyres. Exposed wire casings are discarded. The tyre bale is compliant with the Industry Standard PAS 108. There are five 9-gauge steel wires holding each tyre bale together and each bale can sustain 375,000 lbs of pressure before any failure will occur. Tyre Bales are a 100% recycled product.
