NOVARES is a brand of Rain Carbon Inc.
In tire compounds, mainly based on nature rubber and carbon black fillers, NOVARES resins are traditionally used as dispersing agent and plasticizer. Additionally, the resins reveal an impact on the cross-linking density. With all those functions, the application of hydrocarbon resins is often an approach to improve processing ability, elongation and tear resistance. The last two properties are of particularly high interest, if punctures and chip- and chunk-resistance must be improved.
