CARBON BLACK PRODUCTS FOR TIRES
Enhanced Performance Tread Blacks
To meet tire manufacturers’ requirements for lower rolling resistance, while maintaining treadwear and traction, Birla Carbon has developed a range of carbon blacks with a tailored morphology that offers reduced hysteresis, while maintaining carbon black’s traditional benefits. The range consists of three grades:
- BC2109 High-abrasion, low rolling resistance truck tread applications
- BC2056 High-abrasion, low rolling resistance truck tread applications
- BC2123 Non-tread applications
This grade’s unique combination of particle size, structure, and surface chemistry makes it the preferred carbon black for racing, and an ideal carbon black for high-performance tire applications, allowing the production of tires with superior durability, handling, and traction characteristics.
