An increasing emphasis of the tire industry on sustainability can be met with new fillers. Based on this, the modification of lignin was developed as it offers abundancy, eco-friendliness and a renewable nature.
This study focuses on investigating the reinforcing behavior of a TESPT modified lignin-based filler in a SSBR/BR blend in comparison to CB and silica/TESPT. With mechanical strength comparable to the reference compounds, the lignin-based filler compound exhibits significantly improved dynamic properties. Tailor-made recipes allow to vary the mechanical and dynamic properties to the desired level and to replace conventional fillers.
