Duradene™ Styrene Butadiene Rubber: Tire Applications

Duradene™ solution styrene butadiene rubbers are uniquely suited for use in tire compounds, from tread to sidewall to innerbody.

These synthetic rubbers are used extensively in tire tread compounds, where inherent hysteresis and abrasion resistance benefits contribute to improved tire performance. This performance is possible by controlling the polymers' glass transition temperature through styrene and vinyl adjustments to meet specific tire applications.

The result is tire performance that cannot be easily achieved using emulsion polymerized styrene butadiene rubber.
