At Tire Technology Expo 2017, Trinseo is presenting the development of functionalized synthetic rubber and high-cis polybutadiene rubber.

"Challenging CO2 emission targets will be enforced at the end of this decade for passenger cars and light trucks. Energy efficiency requirements are also on the horizon for heavy trucks," said Dr. Sven Thiele, R&D Leader, Process & Product Development, Anionic/Synthetic Rubber. "This leads to a strong demand for energy efficient vehicle components, including tires, and Trinseo is already supplying top range compounds for this."

Typically high performance functionalized solution styrene butadiene rubber (SSBR) grades are difficult to process. Therefore, Trinseo has developed an alternative highly functionalized clear (oil-free) SSBR grade, which indicates good extrusion characteristics and relatively low polymer-silica formulation viscosity.

"As the new Trinseo experimental grades also indicate good wear characteristics, consumers have a long-term benefit from corresponding tire families," noted Dr. Thiele.

Neodymium BR (Nd-BR) is a high-performance technology, complementary to SSBR, that Trinseo is developing to address current market needs. Dr. Malte Wohlfahrt, Leader ESBR/BR Synthetic Rubber R&D, is spearheading Trinseo's research on the potential implementation of Nd-BR rubber grades.

"CO2 emissions and fuel efficiency are two sides of the same coin, and demand for materials supporting fuel efficiency is growing. We believe that Nd-BR has an important role to play in this," explained Dr. Wohlfahrt. "I'm very excited to present our research on the properties of some of our new Nd-BR grades at the Tire Technology Expo. We've tested these for processability as well as performance –without spoiling too much I can already say that these results are very promising indeed."
