Synthetic Rubber for Passenger Car and Light Truck Tires

Leading S-SBR and E-SBR solutions for world-class tires.

The automotive industry is challenged to keep up with innovative car applications and smart components, such as intelligent tires. Being an innovator in synthetic rubber, Trinseo is a key enabler of this transformation with our focus on functionalized Solution-Styrene Butadiene Rubber (S-SBR) for energy-efficient tires that contribute to significantly reduced CO2 emissions in their use phase and an extended range for electric vehicles. Our latest functionalized SPRINTAN™ S-SBR grades are proven to reduce rolling resistance lab indicators by 50 percent compared to non-functionalized synthetic rubber grades, enabling three to five percent less fuel consumption in passenger cars.

Beside the broad portfolio of S-SBR materials available, Trinseo offers Emulsion-Styrene Butadiene Rubber (E-SBR) materials with an outstanding quality and manufacturing reliability for use in standard tires. Our E-SBR solutions provide a good balance of properties such as wear resistance and wet grip, in combination with excellent processability.
