Founded in 2003 and manufacturing since 2006, Lehigh Technologies is a leading green materials manufacturer that turns end-of-life tire materials and other post-industrial rubber into micronized rubber powders (MRP) that are used in a wide range of industrial and consumer applications, including plastics, high performance tires, consumer and indusrial plastics, consumer goods, coatings & sealants and construction materials. Lehigh Technologies is a World Economic Forum 2010 recipient of The Technology Pioneer Award for its visionary leadership and transformational technology.
At over 140 MM lbs/year in capacity, Lehigh Technologies has the largest known plant capacity dedicated to manufacturing MRP and brings production sophistication to the green materials market, employing state of the art manufacturing processes. Lehigh’s cryogenic turbo mill plant is ISO9001 and ISO14001 certified and employs the highest EHS standards.
Lehigh markets its MRPs under the brand names MicroDyne™ and PolyDyne™. These products come in a range of mesh/micron particle sizes – from 40 mesh (400 microns) to 300 mesh (50 microns). These powders help companies achieve their sustainability goals, improve performance attributes such as, water resistance, energy savings and flexibility, and deliver significant costs savings over virgin raw materials. Lehigh also offers Closed-Loop services in various rubber types, helping companies advance towards their zero-waste goal.
Lehigh officially launched its Application & Development Center (ADC) in November 2010. The ADC’s mission is two-fold – to develop a fundamental understanding of the technical performance of sustainable, micronized powders in complex composites and, as a result, assist customers in developing commercial applications with MicroDyne™ or PolyDyne™ that meet their cost, performance and sustainability targets.
In 2011 it was announced that over 100 Million tires have been manufactured using Lehigh’s PolyDyne™ MRP. We are proud of the environmental contributions the tire companies are making, using sustainable materials while providing a safe tire for their consumers and customers.
Lehigh Technologies is located in Tucker, GA, outside Atlanta, and is backed by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Index Ventures, NGP Energy Technology Partners and Leaf Clean Energy Company.
