Filed under: Silica — Notch @ 8:03 pm

Notch is at the Tire Tech Expo in Hannover, Germany this week. One of this year’s big product announcements at the conference came from Solvay Silica, which unveiled Premium SW, a new performance Highly Dispersible Silica (HDS). In a press release on the product, Solvay says that Premium SW is a benchmark for energy-saving and high- performance tires for passenger cars. Premium SW increases the rolling-resistance and safety in ultra high performance tires of up to 25% as well as a 15% improvement in durability for fuel efficient tires.

Premium SW also shows the most promising results compared to carbon black in the truck tire market, according to Solvay. Premium SW improves the rolling resistance by more than 30% while maintaining the same level of tread wear. Solvay is making Premium SW available from multiple production sites around the globe.

Here is the press release.
