“New Developments in High Performance Elastomers for Tire Applications” Webinar by RDAbbott (June 28)
May 15, 2022
Join us Tuesday, June 28, 2022, from 2:00 – 3:00 PM (ET) for “New Developments in High Performance Elastomers for Tire Applications,” a free webinar hosted by RDAbbott about advancements in ARLANXEO rubber materials for the tire industry.
In addition to hearing a technically rich presentation, live webinar attendees will also have a chance to win a copy of ARLANXEO’s sought-after Handbook of Synthetic Rubber by playing our BINGO game during the presentation. For all the details of our game, please read the “RDAbbott BINGO” section below.
Why You Should Attend
Global regulations, tire labeling, strict original equipment (OE) requirements, vehicle electrification, and customer expectations are driving developments in next-generation tires. The industry needs new and improved raw materials to keep up. As the world’s largest producer of synthetic rubber, ARLANXEO is uniquely positioned to offer a broad portfolio of elastomers, including polybutadiene (BR) and co-polymers of styrene and butadiene (SBR). To support new tire developments, these and other materials can be optimized to meet a customer’s specific requirements.
What You Will Learn
- BUNA® FX 5021, a functionalized, high vinyl, solution styrene butadiene rubber (S-SBR) grade for high-performance tires
- BUNA® FX 3211, a functionalized S-SBR grade with a low glass transition temperature (Tg)
- BUNA® Nd 20 EZ, a modified, long-chain branched BR grade with a higher Mooney viscosity for improved tread dynamics and processing characteristics
Webinar attendees will also learn how these product developments can be extended to non-tire applications, such as belting, anti-vibration bushings, roll covers, and rubber tracks which include blends with other elastomers like NR, SBR, CR and NBR.
