Dow Chemical Company and Lehigh Technologies, manufacturer of sustainable, micronized rubber powders, have announced that the two companies will collaborate on projects to make tires more sustainable. The research involves complementary proprietary technologies to modify the rubber particles for the use of post-consumer rubber materials in tires. “Our primary customer base, the world’s leading tire companies, has been requesting advanced technologies to enable increased sustainable content in tires,” said Alan Barton, CEO of Lehigh Technologies. “The Dow-Lehigh research program is part of a broader technology program at Lehigh, aimed at providing sustainable solutions without compromise.”
