Understanding Green Tire Chemistry

Traditionally, if a tire was designed to advance performance in one area, it often meant a compromise in others…

Vehicle OEMs are currently looking to maximize fuel efficiency as much as possible, yet customers want traction and handling. Since tires are the only part of the vehicle that’s directly connected to the road surface, engineering them to excel in these different areas is no small feat.

To help understand the chemistry involved in making a tire that’s able to advance in these different areas, Smithers hosted a webinar series delving into what’s behind so-called green tire technology.
