Presentation

Solution SBR and silica wet masterbatch for eco-friendly tires

Demand for eco-friendly tires is steadily increasing due to the growing awareness of resource and environmental protection around the world. SSBR, a key material for eco-friendly tires, has improved tire performance by incorporating various high-performance technologies. Recently, a new concept SSBR using sustainable materials has been developed to respond to new elastomer demand for eco-friendly tires. In this seminar, we will introduce the technology of eco-SSBR and silica wet masterbatch.
