With a need to decrease fuel use, legislators from all over the world are advocating for increased fuel efficiency and a reduction in CO2 emissions. We've developed new silanes for building tires with lower rolling resistance to help solve these issues and to help advance tire and rubber compound design, performance and manufacturing.

Since introducing the first NXT* silanes for tires in 2004, our advancements include:

• Helping our customers to enhance tire compounds that help lower fuel consumption by improving rolling resistance while also improving wet traction
• Helping our customers to improve processing for the manufacture of tires, potentially leading to cost efficiencies
• Continuing to innovate and collaborate with tire manufacturers in our 20,000 square foot tire R&D lab in Charlotte, N.C.

Some of our products have also helped manufacturers virtually eliminate ethanol released during the manufacture and use of silica tires. Many new cars now feature high-performance, energy-saving tires made with Momentive's new silane materials. 

From future-focused custom solutions to technologies that provide answers today, discover the products that help the tire and rubber industries meet production and performance demands.
