Presentation

SBR type and rubber composition effects on silica tread properties

Incorporating silica in tread formulations of commercial tires is becoming more widespread every day due to the intriguing saving in energy consumption. However, achieving formulations that have a very good balance of properties like the conventional formulations based on carbon black is a tricky job requiring a lot of research and testing and trial and error. Here we tried a combination of three elastomers in order to achieve a synergy of properties, seeking the superiority of SSBR over ESBR in the designed formulations and whether a combination of silica and CB could be the best compromise.
