CLEVELAND, OH (September 1, 2022) — Polymer Solutions Group (PSG), a polymer additive, dispersion, and release agent manufacturer, today announced that Dr. Rikki Lamba will present at the International Tire Exhibition & Conference (ITEC) 2022. His presentation, “SureMix® – A Sustainable & Holistic Approach for Tire Producers,” is scheduled for 2:00 PM (EST) on Tuesday, September 13, 2022. Dr. Lamba is the Managing Director of Additives and leads Business Development and Marketing at PSG.
In his presentation, Dr. Lamba will discuss how tire producers can help drive a safer and more sustainable society by adopting cutting-edge technology. He will demonstrate how SureMix® (a patented line of functional process aids) is a practical, cost-effective solution that empowers tire manufacturers to meet their performance, cost, and sustainability goals.
“Responsible sourcing and operations are critical components in today’s tire manufacturing process,” said Dr. Lamba. “SureMix® is a 100% bio-based product line and the key to reducing energy consumption (by 20-50%) by reducing mixing time while improving downstream processing. In addition, by using SureMix®, producers can advance mobility and set new benchmarks on tire performance.”
“SureMix® is a great example of how PSG is committed to providing our customers with the material technologies they need to meet the challenges of today and fuel their aspirations for the future,” said Aaron Puhala, Vice President, Innovation. “ITEC attendees will benefit greatly from Dr. Lamba’s deep understanding of the challenges faced by compounders and material designers and will be inspired by how SureMix® can help overcome those challenges in an innovative and sustainable way.”
Dr. Lamba has over 25 years of experience in technology, business leadership, and marketing. As PSG’s Managing Director of Additives, Dr. Lamba leads PSG’s global expansion and development into new markets and applications. Dr. Lamba was awarded his doctorate in Polymer Science from the University of Akron. He holds three US patents on carbon black and dispersion additives.
In its 15th year, ITEC 2022 is to take place September 13-15, 2022, at the John S. Knight Center in Akron, Ohio. Register for ITEC by visiting www.itec-tireshow.com/visit/registration.
