Linglong advances hydrotalcite research

Linglong subsidiary Shandong Diwei New Materials has been studying the use of hydrotalcite to improve the performances of tires in a joint effort with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Beijing University of Chemical Technology.

The programme held its first progress meeting on 31 July, according to a statement on Linglong’s website.

Hydrotalcite is a typical anion lamellar material with supramolucular structure.

Such structural properties, helped by rubber polymer intercalation, can give the material high air barrier performance to be employed in tire inner liner, and also enhanced UV absorption which could lift anti-aging function applied in tire sidewall.
