Electric vehicles and low-emission hybrid cars are driving the transformation of mobility. This means it’s time to learn more about new materials, which can help target the rolling of high-tech tires into carbon neutrality and ultimately into a CO2 emission-free future.
Technical Notebook: Improving SSBR performance for hybrid and electric vehicles
An investigation is then presented for providing tire tread compounds for hybrid and electric vehicles, containing specially designed SSBR and BR grades. Targeted key properties for the compounds are low hysteresis (lower rolling resistance) together with high grip and improved abrasion resistance.
The compound sustainability comes from the use of bio-attributed styrene and butadiene monomers through bio-naphtha, mass balance approach and ISCC-plus certification.
