The advanced rubber material EVEC® produced by Liquid-phase Mixing Technology can simultaneously improve a tire’s rolling resistance, wet braking, and wear resistance, thus breaking the "Magic Triangle" of tire performance that has plagued the industry. Based on EVEC® materials, tire performance such as safety, energy savings, comfort, and noise could be improved significantly. The tire technology which incorporates EVEC® materials is known as EcoPoint3, which made its world debut in December 2021 at the Qingdao Innovation Product Conference and won wide acclaim from users for its excellent performance. The EcoPoint3 tires have already reached or exceeded the performance level of international Tier 1 tire brands, which were tested and confirmed by international testing authorities at the The Tire Cologne in Cologne, Germany in May 2022.
Ecombine has also achieved low-carbon, energy-saving, and emissions reduction throughout the life cycle from raw materials selection, production and manufacturing to product application and reuse through the industrialization of Liquid-phase Mixing Technology, which is of great significance for promoting the green transformation of the industry.
ARLANXEO is a global leader in performance elastomers, with its Chinese headquarter and R&D centre located in Changzhou. Since commencing operations in China, ARLANXEO has continued to enhance its local innovation capabilities by self-developing Keltan® 100+ Ultra-high Mooney Innovation Platform and a variety of high-performance products that support to enhance the properties of automotive components such as tires and harnesses, improving its performance, durability, and environmental benefits under extreme conditions. Currently, ARLANXEO identifies new mobility as one of its development focuses, aiming to provide Keltan®, Buna®, Baypren®, X_Butyl® and other high-quality rubber products to support the high-quality development of tire and auto parts industries.
