WATERFORD, N.Y. (January,
2017) – Momentive Performance Materials Inc.
(“Momentive”) announced it will showcase its highly innovative NXT* silane
products for use in tire manufacturing and processing at the 2017 Tire
Technology Expo in Hannover, Germany, held February 14 – 16.
NXT silane, a thiocarboxylate functional silane,
has been shown to enable reduced rolling resistance without loss of wet
traction, while increasing overall production efficiency for tire manufacturers
as compared to standard sulfur silanes. NXT
silane provides options for enhanced tire performance and overall systems cost-efficiencies for tire
NXT Z 45 silane
is an oligomeric combination of mercapto and thiocarboxylate functional
silanes. It can help improve dynamic and
physical properties, reduce overall manufacturing costs through improved
processing, and virtually eliminate ethanol emissions. Silica compounds coupled with NXT Z 45 silane
generally exhibit improved silica dispersion, easier mixing, and faster pliable
manufacturers can benefit greatly from this technology in an effort to increase
overall production efficiencies while reducing costs; providing consumers with
tires that improve wet traction handling, reduce rolling resistance and enhance
