Use of silane terminated resins in a new high NR loading tread formulation
Silane-terminated resins are proven to be powerful for EV tire formulation. A new step towards tires with higher sustainable content has been identified, reinforcing the versatility of such resins. It has been highlighted that Silane-terminated resins are crucial to the incorporation of high Natural Rubber content within the tread formulation. By the present study we will show that, Silane-terminated resins are able to maintain the overall performance of tread with high Natural Rubber loadings.
