Bridgestone, Arlanxeo and Solvay join to launch tire technology platform Techsyn

Techsyn combines chemically optimized synthetic rubber with tailor-made silica, interacting at a molecular level, to deliver outstanding performance with no trade-offs.

Each material found in TECHSYN was developed in parallel by the three companies to create a tyre technology platform that provides unrivalled performance. TECHSYN enables tyres to achieve up to 30 per cent better wear efficiency and a rolling resistance that is reduced by up to six per cent, compared to other conventional Bridgestone EMIA4 summer products, without compromising any other performance areas. With the goal of ensuring less tyre wear material loss, extra focus was placed on performance improvements in tyre wear throughout the development of TECHSYN.
