E2C DX9660 elastomer composite is produced in a proprietary and patented mixing process that enables superior carbon black dispersion and improved rubber properties for on-road commercial tire applications. Utilizing Cabot’s Light Touch™ mixing guidelines, its DX9660 grade delivers an approximately 30% increase in abrasion resistance without sacrificing rolling resistance over conventional compounds. The on-road performance of this product has been validated by customers globally. Furthermore, by delivering high levels of tread wear resistance, the DX9660 solution results in a reduction of end-of-life tires, thereby enabling a more sustainable future.

Cabot’s E2C solutions offer a diverse array of products tailored for tire manufacturers and industrial applications to deliver performance and sustainability benefits. The E2C solutions not only produce high quality dispersions of traditional and hard to disperse fillers but also can be used with sustainable reinforcement agents such as reclaimed carbons and other bio-based materials. Cabot’s E2C solutions have been successfully used, deployed and tested in off-the-road (OTR) tires; truck, bus and radial (TBR) tires; and industrial products markets.
