Innovative Technology for Tires

Focused on tomorrow’s mobility with a reduced environmental footprint.

Being a collaborative innovator in synthetic rubber, Trinseo works intimately with tire manufacturers to develop environmentally friendly solutions focusing on key areas such as reduced rolling resistance for less fuel consumption and better wear resistance for improved life span.

We have aligned our innovation strategy to our customers’ goal of significant reduction in CO2 emissions.

Trinseo offers a broad portfolio of Solution-Styrene Butadiene Rubber (S-SBR) and Emulsion-Styrene Butadiene Rubber (E-SBR) materials. We take pride in the fact that our products are developed to meet an outstanding balance of desired performance requirements based on specific customer needs.

Our state-of-the-art S-SBR pilot plant, inaugurated in 2018, supports close collaboration and enables faster innovation cycles.

World-class tire companies see Trinseo’s Dry Low Tg S-SBR grades, such as SPRINTAN™ SLR 3402, as highly versatile solutions, suitable for summer, winter, and all-season applications. These materials are suitable for passenger car, truck and bus tires, providing a functionalization that is active both in carbon black and in silica compounds.

In addition, our oil-extended S-SBR grades, such as SPRINTAN™ 918S, improve rolling resistance/wet grip balance without a negative impact on abrasion resistance (and durability) in summer, ultra-high performance, racing and motorbike tires.

Trinseo continues to focus on driving the future with synthetic rubber solutions for tire applications and becoming the leading collaboration partner for high-performance, fuel-efficient tires to the entire tire value chain.
