CLEVELAND, OH (October 3, 2019) — Specialty polymer additives, dispersions, and performance chemicals manufacturer, Polymer Solutions Group (“PSG”), will showcase their patented, class-leading line of SureMix® Functional Process Aids in booth #1241 at the upcoming International Elastomer Conference, October 8-10 in Cleveland. PSG’s Innovation Program Manager, Vince Cremona will also present at the 196th Technical Meeting on Tuesday, October 8th.

SureMix®, Class-Leading Functional Process Aids have proven effective in resolving today’s Silica challenges in rubber compound processing and tire performance. Developed for tire and industrial rubber component manufacturers to reduce mixing time/passes; increase throughput; increase shelf life; lower rolling resistance; increase wet traction; and improve handling.

Cremona’s presentation, “A Paradigm Shift: SureMix® CO², a Performance Optimizing Process Aid which Enables Next-Level Hysteresis Reduction with Functional, Solution SBR, and Provides a Route to More Efficient, Complete Silanization,” will focus on how to formulate with SureMix® to optimize mixing and processing without sacrificing performance or the need for higher silane loadings. He will discuss how tire companies can solve today’s challenges resulting from new raw materials (especially Functional, solution SBR (“FsSBR”) and Silica). He will also discuss how SureMix® can cost effectively meet the performance and environmental challenges faced by the tire industry.

“Vince will illustrate that SureMix® CO² not only provides a route to more efficient, complete silanization, SureMix® also enables the next-level in hysteresis reduction when used in conjunction with Functional, Solution SBR, without sacrificing processability,” said PSG Vice President of Innovation, Aaron Puhala. “With SureMix® compounders can formulate without compromise.”

Cremona’s session, “A Paradigm Shift: SureMix® CO², a Performance Optimizing Process Aid…” will take place on Tuesday, October 8, 2019 from 4:45 PM – 5: 15 PM. Industry professionals can still register for IEC at Use code EP1241 before October 7 for free admission, while supplies last.
