ExxonMobil Chemical to Host Tire Symposium 2009 in Chengdu, China
Sponsored exclusively by ExxonMobil Chemical, the event will feature product marketing and technology specialists describing tomorrow's tire innerliner technologies that have the potential to significantly improve today's tire performance. Exxcore™ DVA resin-based innerliners, for example, have the potential to reduce tire weight while being up to 10 times more effective at retaining air than conventional innerliners of the same thickness. This leading-edge inflation pressure retention (IPR) can result in tires that last longer, handle better and contribute to improved fuel economy and reduced carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.
Symposium speakers will focus on the technical advantages of new innerliner technologies as well as economic and manufacturing considerations. The conference also will provide a view on the global energy outlook and information about global tire market trends, regulatory changes and technology advances in halobutyl rubber technology. It also will highlight production process improvements and announced facility expansions that are part of the Company's commitment to reliable supply to support industry growth.
"This event will give Chinese tire manufacturers a close-up view of innerliner technology that will influence the tire industry and tire manufacturing," said John W. Lyon, global vice president, Global Butyl Polymers Business Unit, ExxonMobil Chemical. "We think it's the perfect opportunity for Chinese companies to gain additional information to help put themselves at the forefront of trends and technology that can help them be more successful."
Tire Symposium 2009 will be held at the Shangri-La Hotel, 9 Binjiang Dong Road, in Chengdu. Additional information and conference registration forms are available at www.tire-symposium.com.
