Description: The innerliner is one of the most important components in a tire. This is due to the fact the innerliner must ensure tire inflation pressure retention. Loss on of inflation pressure will cause a decrease in tire durability due to excessive casing flexing as it rotates under load, increased vehicle fuel consumption due to increased rolling resistance, and loss of traction and wear performance. And this is even more important with the new generation of electric vehicles. The innerliner is based in halobutyl rubber. Bromobutyl has become the preferred polymer due to the better innerliner to tire ply compound adhesion. All of the new global butyl rubber production over the last ten years has been for bromobutyl for this reason. Butyl based compounds are difficult to process due to the need to isolate and prevent contamination of other tire compounds. Manufacturing operations are therefore designed for this purpose. However halobutyl compounds are relatively easy to process, they only require 2-stage mixing processes, extruder easily and when plied up with a barrier before tire building, handle well in manufacturing. This discussion will overview butyl and halobutyl rubbers, compounding, and impact on tire performance

Description: Natural rubber is among the most important elastomers used in the manufacturing of products such as tires and conveyor belts. The polymer imparts many unique properties such as high tensile strength, tear strength, and resilience. This review will discuss natural rubber beginning with its biosynthesis, through to production, classification, and fundamental properties. Natural Rubber is obtained by tapping the side of the tree, Hevae brasiliensis. It is then processed and classified according to the quality and form under which it is shipped. Natural rubber is the preferred polymer in tire applications were high tear strength, tensile strength, and low hysteretic properties are required. It is used in wire coat or skim compounds, the shoulder wedge, and bead filler, and in tread compounds for winter passenger, medium truck and off-the-road tires. In many tire applications natural rubber is blended with other elastomers to achieve a required balance of properties. Sidewalls are typically blends of natural rubber and polybutadiene. Innerliner compounds, which are discussed in depth, can contain natural rubber in low amounts when blended with either chlorobutyl or bromobutyl rubber to achieve a balance of high impermeability, good adhesion, excellent flex-fatigue resistance, and good durability. The review will also cover natural rubber grader selection by application, interchangeability of grades and quality.

Description: Polymer or elastomer blending is a valuable technique at optimizing a set of performance properties the design engineer is working to meet. Blending is used extensively in tire engineering. It is used in tread compounding, tire sidewall compounds, and many times in the tire innerliner. This enables the engineer to achieve what in most instances is a satisfactory compromise between conflicting design requirements. The important aspects to blending is polymer compatibility, setting up effective mixing cycles to achieve the needed level of dispersion, and in the tire before vulcanization, control of compounding ingredient migration across component interfaces.
