Yokohama begins production of high load capacity tires

The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced that it has begun production and sales of HLC (high load capacity) tires to meet the needs of heavy duty passenger cars such as EVs and hybrid cars with high capacity batteries, as well as large SUVs. Having been developed as the original equipment (OE) on new cars and for their repairs, Yokohama Rubber will also develop products for the replacement market in line with market needs.

Pirelli’s P Zero reduces rolling resistance

The structure of the P ZERO Race TLR features a tire tread made with the SmartEVO formulation, a cutting-edge compound of polymers created to offer an excellent grip and low rolling resistance. The tire is different in the inside compared to its predecessor: here the use of the new SPEEDCORE technology offers low rolling resistance and great protection from punctures, thus reinforcing the casing – without making it stiff – through the use of aramid fibers. Aramid in fact has chemical-physical features that allow for high resistance to traction, cuts and heat, thus favoring the mechanical properties of the tire itself.


DuPont Liveo Healthcare exhibits at 2023 EBC Biopharma Conference

uPont starts its two-day exhibition at the 2023 EBC Biopharma Conference (booth: D017), introducing a series of high-quality products for value chain users in the biopharmaceutical industry. The showcase includes new China-made silicone tubing enabling local material supply and meeting growing local demand.

Birla Carbon will participate at Tire Technology Expo 2023

Birla Carbon will share innovative solutions for the tire industry, covering high durability, low permeability, balance rolling resistance, and low hysteresis for sidewall compounds. These solutions can be viewed through the state-of-the-art virtual showroom at Tire Technology Expo 2023.


Cabot Corporation announced the launch of EVOLVE Sustainable Solutions

Cabot Corporation announced the launch of EVOLVE™ Sustainable Solutions, a new technology platform for advancing sustainable reinforcing carbons. Cabot’s ambition through this technology platform is to develop products that offer sustainable content with reliable performance at industrial scale by leveraging circular value chains and materials recovered from end-of-life tires, and/or renewable and bio-based materials, and/or processes that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Resulting from these efforts, Cabot has launched two new products which will be sold as the company’s first-ever International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC PLUS) certified solutions.

Silane modified low molecular weight liquid polymers in sulfur cured mixtures of styrene butadiene copolymers and silica

Global emissions of greenhouse gases from trucks and passenger cars are influenced by the deformation energy and friction losses of tires. It is mostly associated with the rolling resistance between the tire tread and the road surface. For this reason, the rolling resistance is considered one of the most important performance indicators (that is, targeted to be reduced) within the tire industry.



High efficiency twin screw extruder

The demand for performance and consistency of elastomer based compounds is growing quickly in all fields (tire, technical rubber goods, cables). Specifications regarding physical, mechanical and chemical properties, as well as “visual aspects” properties of the finished products are becoming more and more strict.
During compound production, all operations are involved, from the weighing to the storage of the semi-finished mixed compounds. The mixing operation plays a very important role, since it is the step where all ingredients are incorporated, dispersed and distributed.
