Steven Henning, researcher with TOTAL Cray Valley, will present a technical paper at this year’s International Elastomer Conference, which will be held October 8-10 in Cleveland, Ohio. He will discuss “Silane-Terminated Liquid Poly(butadienes) in Tread Formulations: A Mechanistic Study” in session C18 at 2 p.m. on October 9. During his presentation, Henning will reportedly detail the mechanism behind the changes in viscoelastic and mechanical properties attributed to the addition of silane-terminated liquid poly(butadienes) to silica-filled tread compounds.
