Biobased tire performance and rubber process additives
Y. Verdonk, Wolfgang Pille-Wolf
The presentation will focus on two types of additives; process enhancement additives and tread enhancement additives.
The tread enhancement additives market has grown the last decade due to changed regulations. Arizona Chemicals tread enhancement additives show optimal performance balance between wet traction improvement, rolling resistance and wear resistance (magic triangle).
While gaining better tire properties, processability could become more challenging.
Process enhancement additives could be used to improve the processability without significantly impacting the improved tire properties.
