Hydrite SB100

Hydrite® SB100 Hyper platy kaolins reduce permeability of tire inner liners

Engineered kaolin, such as our Hydrite® SB100 are ideal for high impermeability applications such as tire inner liners. Hydrite® SB100 has a higher aspect ratio and provides improved barrier properties without impairing the mechanical performance and flowability of the compound.

Used as a partial replacement to less environmentally friendly carbon black, Hydrite® SB100:

  • Enhances mechanical properties, giving better fatigue resistance
  • Improves barrier properties hence impermeability
  • Enables tire manufacturers to downgage inner tire liners
  • Improves rolling resistance leading to fuel savings and reduced CO2 emissions
  • Limits oxygen diffusion through the carcass preventing steel cord corrosion and improving durability
  • Diminishes plasticizer evaporation, giving better thermal resistance and extending service life
  • Is an effective processing aid lowering compound viscosity and improving compound flow
  • Is a natural, environmentally friendly solution

We offer a full range of custom formulation and technical and process support services to help you match the right mineral grade to your application requirement.
