Enhances Performance, Minimizes Production Steps
Providing options for enhanced tire performance and overall system cost efficiencies for tire manufacturers worldwide, NXT silane has a unique design that can enable reduced rolling resistance without loss of wet traction, while promoting increased overall production efficiency for tire manufacturers. By combining silica compounds with NXT silane, tests have shown improved silica dispersion; easier mixing; and faster, more pliable processing. Compounds formulated with NXT silane have shown lower Payne effect, improved tan delta values, and better resilience properties. This silane may also be considered for use in tire tread compound manufacturing to enable the processing with high silica loading.
