AKRON—Two Lanxess A.G. representatives will explore rubber additives used to improve tire traction and reversion resistance during two presentations planned for the the International Tire Exhibition & Conference.
Hermann-Josef Weidenhaupt, senior application technology specialist for Lanxess' Rhein Chemie business unit, will present "Vulkanol TOF To Improve Wet and Ice Traction In Tires" Sept. 12 at 4 p.m. His presentation will detail how the use of Vulkanol TOF rubber additive resulted in improvements in the "magic triangle" of tire technology in silica tread formulations, Lanxess said.
Joel Neilsen, technical applications specialist for Rhein Chemie, will present "Two Compounding Additives to Improve Tire Reversion Resistance" Sept. 12 at 2:30 p.m. Neilsen will talk about the use of Vulcuren and Perkalink 900 to reduce reversion in truck and bus radial tires and off-the-road tires to prolong service life.
Lanxess will be exhibiting at Booth 321.
ITEC, an event dedicated to exploring the latest technology and innovations behind tire design and manufacturing, will run Sept. 11-13 at the John S. Knight Center in Akron. Learn more at itec-tireshow.com.
