Against all resistance

How innovative materials help reduce rolling resistance

Buna® CB

Tires' rolling resistance counts for about 30 per cent of a vehicle's fuel consumption. High performance rubber grades with an outstanding resilience reduce the rolling resistance of tires without negative effects on safety. In that way they help to save fuel and to cut CO2 emissions – clearly contributing to "Green Mobility".

The extremely elastic high-performance NdBR reduces rolling resistance in the treads and side walls of tires. This has a direct influence on the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of cars.
