  • Patent number: 10662319
    Abstract: Provided is a rubber composition in which static ozone resistance, dynamic ozone resistance and discoloration resistance are highly balanced. Also provided is a tire in which static ozone resistance, dynamic ozone resistance and discoloration resistance are highly balanced. The rubber composition comprises a rubber component, a petroleum wax, and an antidegradant, wherein the petroleum wax comprises a C20-C34 hydrocarbon component and a C35 or higher hydrocarbon component, and a proportion of the C20-C34 hydrocarbon component is 15% by mass to 30% by mass and a proportion of the C35 or higher hydrocarbon component is 70% by mass to 85% by mass, based on a total mass of the C20-C34 hydrocarbon component and the C35 or higher hydrocarbon component.

  • Publication number: 20190225775
    Abstract: A rubber composition allows suppression of cracking and discoloration of a tire surface. The rubber composition includes a rubber component (A), a quinoline age resistor (B) including a polymer of 2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline, and N-phenyl-N?-(1,3-dimethylbutyl)-p-phenylenediamine (C). The content ratio of the quinoline age resistor (B) is 0.1 mass % to 1.5 mass % in terms of the total amount of the rubber composition. The total content ratio of dimers and trimers of the 2,2,4-trimethyl-1,2-dihydroquinoline in the quinoline age resistor (B) is 60 mass % or more.

  • Publication number: 20130302606
    Abstract: The present invention aims to provide a steel cord-rubber composite that is, even when a rubber composition constituting coating rubber does not contain cobalt salt, excellent in adhesion to a steel cord and capable of suppressing a decrease in modulus. The steel cord-rubber composite according to the present invention is constituted by using the steel cord coated with a rubber composition containing organic acid metal salt containing 10 mass % or less of free acid.
