Synthetic Rubber for Passenger Car and Light Truck Tires

Trinseo’s high-cis butadiene rubber (BR) and styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) series covers a wide range of passenger car as well as light truck tires.

For car and light truck tires, the cold polymerized emulsion-styrene butadiene rubber (E-SBR) of BUNA™ Rubber SB grades use TDAE oil to comply with REACH regulations. Benefits include a good balance of performance and processability and a superior standard of quality.

With over 95% cis content, Trinseo’s nickel-butadiene rubber (Ni-BR) is characterized by an adjusted molecular weight that leads to excellent processing behavior. Our BUNA™ Cis 132-Schkopau Rubber also offers low hysteresis and good tear resistance, making it optimal for tire applications.

The high-cis butadiene rubber and styrene butadiene rubber series offered by Trinseo cover a wide range of automotive needs as well as high performance applications needed in the passenger car and light truck industry.

Standard Elastomers

Our cold polymerized E-SBR of BUNA™ SB grades use TDAE oil exclusively in order to comply with REACH regulations. These grades provide a good balance of performance and processability in tire application with a superior standard of quality.

Trinseo’s nickel-butadiene rubber (Ni-BR) has over 95% cis content and is characterized by an adjusted molecular weight that leads to excellent processing behavior. Our BUNA™ cis 132 Rubber also offers low hysteresis and good tear resistance, which makes it optimal for tire application.

Advanced Performance Elastomers

Trinseo has utilized its strong understanding of S-SBR to develop a multi generation proprietary functionalization technology: SPRINTAN™ SLR series of solution-SBR. This new technology enables tire producers to expand the “magic triangle” without making tradeoffs among the three key properties rolling resistance, wet grip and abrasion resistance.

SPRINTAN™ functionalized S-SBR is a key enabler for tire makers to upgrade their tire line with the objective to achieve the best rating according to the tire labeling (A-A).
Winter Tire
Trinseo’s grades are produced by anionic batch polymerization and are available in a wide variety of styrene and vinyl contents. They are used in manufacturing high quality rubbers used in the winter tire sector.
