Since introducing the first NXT* silanes for tires in 2004, our advancements include:
• Helping our customers to enhance tire compounds that help lower fuel consumption by improving rolling resistance while also improving wet traction
• Helping our customers to improve processing for the manufacture of tires, potentially leading to cost efficiencies
• Continuing to innovate and collaborate with tire manufacturers in our 20,000 square foot tire R&D lab in Charlotte, N.C.
Some of our products have also helped manufacturers virtually eliminate ethanol released during the manufacture and use of silica tires. Many new cars now feature high-performance, energy-saving tires made with Momentive's new silane materials.
From future-focused custom solutions to technologies that provide answers today, discover the products that help the tire and rubber industries meet production and performance demands.
