Influence of polymer microstructure - property relation on tyre performance
In tyre technology 3 critical properties that development focusing on RR, Wear and Wet Grip called Magic Triangle. Challenge for tyre development is to improve all performance without deteriorating other performance. In tread compound, SSBR & silica are usually used to maintain tyre performance. It is very challenging to achieve /or balance tread rubber performance as desired. In this seminar, we will demonstrate polymer microstructure-property relationship and it influence on tyre performance.
