New Recycled Tyres to Improve Concrete Resistance from Fire

According to a recent study, a new way could help protect concrete from fire damage. This is done using recycled material of old tyres. Scientists at University of Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England, find out in their research. The fibre from textile reinforcement were the raw material for the research. They are commonly used to improve performance of tyres. Upon adding these fibres to the concrete mix, test results shows that
