Raw materials used in tires and technical rubber goods need to meet high standards. Low rolling resistance ensures a long life of the tire and low energy consumption. On the other hand, good adhesion and grip are essential for safety. The use of hydrocarbon resins becomes highly essential for the improvement of grip and reduction of rolling resistance and noise.
Since those dynamic properties are closely linked to the visco-elasticity of a rubber compound, a targeted modification of visco-elasticity requires a selective use of resins. NOVARES C, TL and TM grades are proven to be the most efficient products for the modification.
