Racing teams and driving enthusiasts demand high-performance tires that require unique rubber compounds, especially in the tread.
The selection of reinforcing agents in these applications is critical, as it can affect the ability of the tire to grip the road and handle responsively. High compound stiffness is necessary to ensure tires transmit forces quickly between the vehicle and the road.
Additionally, high tread compound hysteresis helps the tire conform to the road surface, maximizing grip. Our innovative carbon blacks for elastomer reinforcement product portfolio can enable exceptional grip and responsive handling.
