Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractAcademic


The tyre tread is the only point of contact between the vehicle and the road. Therefore, the tread must ensure the safety of the passengers inside the vehicle, contributes also to the overall efficiency of the vehicle, and should withstand abrasion in the best possible way to diminish microplastic emissions. In order to improve the tyre performance, choosing the right materials to formulate a tread compound is an important step. In the presented study, different materials were used and combined to understand their effects on a reference tyre tread compound focusing on wet grip and abrasion resistance performance.
