Dow announced its launch of the world’s first recyclable silicone self-sealing tire solution. The solution has been successfully utilised in Bridgestone’s newly released B-SEALS, a recyclable tire sealant technology. With its new SiLASTIC SST-2650 Self-sealing Silicone, Dow is meeting self-sealing tire manufacturers’ demands for high performance and sustainability, while providing drivers and passengers with a lighter-weight, safer, and more durable solution.
“Dow is dedicated to leveraging its long-standing expertise in materials science to improve manufacturer and customer experiences in mobility – and this includes the emerging technology of self-sealing tires, which provide enhanced safety, convenience, and weight-efficiency,”
said Jeroen Bello, Global Marketing Director for Mobility and Transportation, Dow Consumer Solutions.
“With a growing consumer and enterprise awareness of environmental protection, especially among customers of premium brands, we saw the demand for a more sustainable, higher-performing solution. Through our collaboration with Bridgestone, Dow has developed a new self-sealing silicone and successfully applied it to B-SEALS. Embracing the philosophy of Seek Together and our commitment to sustainability, Dow is looking forward to working with more innovative partners to explore further possibilities of self-sealing tire solutions.”
