The use of multi-wall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) for significantly improved wear resistant elastomer compounds, such as off-the-road (OTR) tire treads, has been established in previous studies. Those studies demonstrated an expansion in the ‘magic triangle’ of tire compound properties towards an optimization of wear resistance and rolling resistance or heat build-up, which is expected given the reinforcing properties of properly dispersed MWCNTs. A compound adjustment resulting in improved wet grip and rolling resistance simultaneously, while maintaining wear resistance, has not yet been studied with discrete carbon nanotubes. It is atypical for a reinforcing filler to be utilized in improving wet grip and hysteretic properties, but the use of discrete multiwall carbon nanotubes called MOLECULAR REBAR®, in combination with a change in elastomer composition or ratio of blends, can negate decreased wear resistance associated with altered polymer selection, while improving wet grip and hysteresis. The ‘magic triangle’ of compound properties can be expanded in any direction with individualized and reinforcing MWCNTs- improved wear and hysteresis with no change to wet grip has been demonstrated previously, and now improved wet grip and hysteresis has been shown with no change to wear resistance.
