'Studying rubber materials from its basics ~ focusing on tire materials~'

                             Yasushi Hirata


Irrespective of 'safety' and 'comfort' issues, making the products friendly to the 'environment' is very important for developing tires. In this direction, progress made towards important material technologies viz., 'fuel-efficient tires' for supporting both the improvement of fuel consumption and road wet-grip performance, 'run-flat tires' for contributing in resource saving and safe driving even after their puncture, 'studless tires' for improving brake performance on frosted road surface in winter, are to be introduced along with the coverage on various efforts made towards achieving 'material sustainability' by diversifying and improving the use of renewable sources e.g., Guayule, Russian Dandelion, synthetic rubber derived from biomass, etc.
