CLEVELAND, OH (April 10, 2019) — Polymer Solutions Group (“PSG”) today announced that Dr. Rikki Lamba, Managing Director, PSG Additives, will present at Clemson University’s Global Tire Industry Conference on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, on Thursday, April 11 at 1:30 PM. Lamba will speak under Session 4: “Raw Materials – Rubber, Chemicals, & Carbon Black.”
Lamba’s presentation, “Optimize Tire Performance: Formulating without Compromise,” will focus on how to optimize tire compounding in a rapidly changing industry without sacrificing performance or the need for higher silane loadings. He will discuss how today’s changes are leading to the development and commercialization of new raw materials grades (especially Functional, solution SBR (“FsSBR”) and Silica) and how to cost effectively meet the performance and environmental challenges faced by the tire industry.
“SureMix® is a new line of performance optimizing process aids that has proven to be effective in resolving manufacturing challenges and improving tire performance while mitigating the need for higher silane loadings,” said Lamba. “Tire compounding is optimizing the art of compromise. With SureMix® we can optimize without compromise.”
