ERJ staff report (SS) Midland, Michigan -- Xiameter, Dow Corning's web-enabled business, has announced that it will add sulphur silanes to its product line from 1 Jan 2008.
These new products, used by manufacturers in the production of tyres and general rubber goods, will be available to customers in Europe and the US.
â€œBy offering these products through Xiameter, customers benefit from the convenience of online purchasing, market-based prices and the reliability they have come to expect from Xiameter,â€ said David Unsworth, business development manager of Xiameter, in a 14 Dec statement.
Sulphur silane is widely used as a coupling agent and as an adhesion promoter in rubber compounds. One of its key applications is in the production of silica-reinforced tread for â€œgreenâ€ tyres.
