Nanotechnology and Tyre Technology

New Nanoprene Development from LANXESS

Lanxess recently given a press release citing the commercialisation of a special polymer additive called "Nanoprene" !!
This material additive for the rubber mixture of the tire tread significantly cuts wear in automobile tires. The much longer service life of the tire as a wearing part is easy on the wallet and the environment. Unlike with many new developments in the tire rubber sector, use of this additive to enhance wear resistance does not in any way impact on rolling resistance or wet grip.
For tyre technologists improving mileage was a big concern while using silica filler to get low RR and traction.
Thanks to Lnaxess !!!
