Remarkable improvements in hybrid low black tread compound properties at reduced loadings of nanofiller/carbon black are achieved when compared to conventional reinforcement compounding. The influence of abrasion resistant carbon black in an optimized clay/black nanocomposite system has been extensively studied and will be described.
