Key statement: The present invention refers to developing and obtaining new composite materials based on rubbers and/or elastomers and/or their recycled can be reused through an in situ polymerization program between the combination of different monomers and/or oligomers type diisocyanate, esters or organic peroxides crosslinking agent, which in their combination generates a binding agent capable of modifying the intrinsic chemical, thermal, rheological and mechanical properties in the material, and the chains chemical crosslinking originated by the incorporation of organic peroxides which are able to accelerate or decrease the reaction rate.
