Cabot Corporation Expands Engineered Elastomer Composites (E2C™) Line with First Product in New Foundation Series of Solutions
E2C FX9390 offers superior performance and improved economics
When combined with other E2C solutions, FX9390 provides mining customers with flexibility for tire compound formulation within a wide design space.
“We are proud to expand our E2C solutions portfolio with the launch of our first Foundation series product. FX9390 presents a high performance elastomer composite solution for OTR mining and retreading applications that enables customers to quickly develop and launch new tires with performance improvements in multiple dimensions,” explained
FX9390 is a pre-mixed material delivered in highly friable bales, which simplifies material handling and supports production flexibility. Like all E2C solutions, FX9390 can be integrated into a tire-maker’s current production line without additional capital investment, enabling manufacturers to evolve their business models by expanding the performance triangle, shortening development cycles, and reducing operational barriers to new product commercialization. Additionally, because it is pre-mixed, customers can achieve higher performance levels with faster processing times, which is particularly valuable when used on sold-out production lines.
- Performance improvements in multiple dimensions
- Enables a large design space when combined with E2C Durability series products
- Fewer mixing stages, requiring up to 50% less mixing energy
- Shorter mixing cycles, requiring up to 50% less mixing time
FX9390 is the latest in the E2C family of solutions launched in early 2020, and represents Cabot’s ongoing commitment to helping tire manufacturers reach performance goals while also improving sustainability performance. Cabot E2C™ solutions are designed to raise the bar in tire performance while offering efficiencies in tire manufacturing.
