Most countries in the Americas region have banned aromatic extracts in tyres and those remaining are expected to make the move in the coming years. The region’s consumers, however, are mostly concerned about tread wear, which determines how long tyres last.
“This is positive for Nynas, as our NYTEX® 4700 offers a lower abrasion rate compared to competing products when used as extenders for rubber compounds for tyres,” says Gutenberg Souza Oliveira, Sales Manager, Nynas US/Canada.
While consumers so far seem less concerned about the impact of tyres on fuel economy, it is a focus for the world’s biggest tyre company, Bridgestone, which foresees that stringent regulatory demands will look to reduce CO2 emissions by vehicles.
“In that sense as well, Nynas is well-positioned since several studies have showed that NYTEX® 4700 offers a lower rolling resistance, and therefore lower fuel consumption, compared to tyres made with competing oils.”
2020 was a year like no other. Beyond the face masks, social distancing and working from home, the economy took a dive. These unprecedented events coincided with an ongoing restructuring of the refining industry, which will have a lasting effect on the production of tyres and rubber.Read more about Plasticizing rubber after Covid-19
