One of the problematic issues with the recycling of used automobile tires is the production of unwanted fiber waste. This waste is considered as a major burden and as an industrial waste which constitutes an extra cost to industries. In this project, thermal and noise insulators were produced from the fiber waste of automobiles. The insulation materials were used in insulating different types of rooms to study their thermal and noise insulation effectiveness (Caravan rooms and brick rooms). Results were also compared to identical rooms without insulation. Results showed that the thermal properties of the obtained sheets are similar to those used currently in construction. The differences between the insulated rooms and the non-insulated rooms were about 2⸰C and 1-4 dBA for thermal and sound level, respectively, for both construction models during day and night all over the year period. KEYWORDS: Automobile tires, Fiber, Thermal insulation, Sound insulation.
