Tire

K-LR is a favored component in the production of high performance tires. It reduces the Mooney viscosity which minimizes migration in tires. While improving the process-ability of rubber compounding in tires, K-LR enhances the performance of tires significantly by simultaneously controlling the balance of grip, fuel efficiency and wear resistance. K-LR is crosslink-able for superior performance and a longer shelf life.
