BOSTON—It's not just that Cabot Corp.'s Engineered Elastomer Composite (E2C) solutions are more sustainable.
Turns out, they're tougher too.
The company late last month introduced E2C DX9660 to its portfolio. The solution, Cabot said, delivers significantly increased rubber durability through high abrasion resistance. And it does so while still offering "high levels of tread wear resistance without sacrificing rolling resistance."
Targeted for use in on-road commercial tire applications—commercial retreads and tires for long-haul, regional and intercity trucks and buses—as well as protective rubber liners for industrial equipment, DX9660 can reduce abrasion by as much as 30 percent when compared to conventional compounds.
