Cutting-edge, high-performance materials are in development and being adopted to meet today’s and future demands, spanning product durability, fuel economy, and safety, including traction and braking. Sustainability also stands as a paramount objective for most tire and rubber companies. Enter SureMix®, an innovative class of biocarbon-based performance process aids that allow compounders to achieve uncompromised formulations.
Tire producers are adopting advanced solutions like functional polymers, higher surface area fillers, and increased silica loadings to expand the performance envelope, leading the charge for safer, eco-friendly mobility. However, these approaches often require extended mixing times and experience downstream complexities, spotlighting high-viscosity challenges in high-performance rubber compounds. As the next-gen materials are commercialized, particularly functional polymers, polymer viscosities that soar past 150 MU amplify this concern.
In this webinar, we will focus on how to mitigate the challenges of higher Silica content and higher Mooney viscosity functional solution SBR polymers. Polymer Solutions Group developed SureMix® performance-optimizing process additives that enhance processability, reduce mix-passes or cycle times, and improve extrusion smoothness, all while maintaining modulus and tensile properties and optimizing dynamic characteristics.
