NeoCrumb, LLC was formed to promote a new family of products for the plastics industry. Using a proprietary process, we are able to bond rubber from recycled tires with virgin/recycled plastic to create an entirely new composite compound.

NeoCrumb has developed an innovative product that can change the face of the plastics industry. Called PolyCrumb, the product is a replacement for virgin resin used in plastic extrusion and injection molding machinery, but with far broader application and versatility.
Current plastic extruders and injection molders contend with tight margins, in the region of 5 – 7%. Because of PolyCrumb’s unique characteristics, its application in the production process can result in immediate and significant cost savings, resulting in increased profit margins of 25% to 50%. Reasons include:
– Injection molded at lower temperatures
– Less shrinkage and faster cooling times of the end product
– The price of PolyCrumb is lower than virgin resin
We make PolyCrumb using a proprietary process that mixes rubber from scrap tires with various polymers, whether virgin or recycled, to create an entirely new composite compound. The product comes in the form of granular pellets and has applications as both a polymer and an elastomer.
PolyCrumb demonstrates environmental responsibility. Scrap tires continue to pose a serious environmental headache, as a lack of a cost-effective industrial application results in millions of scrap tires being dumped in landfills across America.
To date, we have tested the product, proven the ability to manufacture at any given quantity, and made initial presentations to customers. Customers have shown incredible enthusiasm for PolyCrumb, and their feedback has been essential to optimizing our product offering. This has resulted in an initial basket of around 20 PolyCrumb products, each with slight variations to meet differing needs.
Our reason for this round of fundraising is to execute an almost vertical sales growth. Based on current indications, we could be at a $12 million run rate by year-end.
Products / Services
PolyCrumb is made using an innovative and proprietary process that mixes tire-derived crumb rubber with various polymers, whether virgin or recycled, to create an entirely new family of composite compounds. PolyCrumb possesses the characteristics of virgin resin, but with far broader application and versatility. PolyCrumb comes in the form of granular pellets – similar to existing products used in plastic extrusion and injection molding machinery – and has multiple applications in the plastics industry.
Some of the key benefits of using PolyCrumb in the manufacturing process include:
– Injection mold at lower temperatures
– Increased throughput
– Reduced lead times
– Create stronger and less brittle products
– Can be made from 100% recycled materials
The unique characteristic of PolyCrumb is that it has applications as both a polymer and an elastomer, giving us and our customers total flexibility.
