Analysis of tire wear airstrip particles (TWAP)

Particle size distribution

Despite the sieving process, large particles can still be found in both the TWAP and the rubber powder. The TWAP showing particle sizes of up to 750 μm and the rubber powder even up to 1 mm (see Fig. 1). Reagglomeration after sieving and elongated particles which pass the mesh with their smaller width are leading to higher particle sizes. The particle size distribution of TWAP is significantly wider than that . . .
