The abrasion resistance of silica-filled tire treads still requires further improvement compared to carbon black-filled ones. It was investigated if a synergistic effect of silica with organoclay leads to a shift of the tire performance towards enhanced abrasion resistance for better durability. The results from lab characterizations indicate that silica/organoclay-filled compounds have a positive impact on abrasion resistance while improving wet traction indicator and maintaining good rolling resistance indicator.
