With upcoming changes in mobility & transportation and low/free maintenance vehicle parts, tire technology has become increasingly important. All-season tires are gaining popularity in the tire industry due to their wider versatility, increased convenience and lower cost for use and maintenance.


Titled “Trinseo’s New Approach for All-season Tire Development”, Thomas Wu (Senior Development Specialist, R&D at Trinseo) gave a presentation focused on the novel SPRINTAN™ 918S and SPRINTAN™ SLR3402 blends. The materials achieved overall performance improvement, compared with the traditional approach based on a popular high vinyl functionalized S-SBR. Trinseo’s approach translates into improved wear resistance, better wet grip, and uncompromised fuel efficiency.
