The automotive industry is facing enormous challenges to maximise its contribution to ensuring mobility becomes cleaner and more fuel-efficient. This requires many innovations, such as lightweight materials and more efficient power trains. Evonik, which specialises in high value added materials, is able to deliver innovative solutions to many of these challenges. One of many examples of this is the innovative rubber, silence Si 363®, for use in the tyre industry. In comparison to other existing silica/silane solutions, this product provides tyres with further reduced lower rolling resistance and avoids emissions of volatile organic components during the production and lifetime of tyres. A great innovation for more efficient, safer and cleaner driving.
