In recent years, China's tire exports are faced with tire labeling and other technical barriers and trade friction. Many countries have put higher demands on tire performance, and more and more countries are brewing or have implemented tire labeling regulations. Such as Japan from the beginning of 2010 to implement a voluntary tire labeling system, the United States as early as six years ago passed the provisions of the provisions of the tire label, and the EU, South Korea from November 1 this year, the implementation of mandatory tire labeling regulations, then Green tires global market share will increase by more than 15%.

In contrast, the definition of domestic green tires fuzzy, lack of standards, lack of detection means has restricted China's tire industry upgrades and product structure adjustment.

China Rubber Industry Association (hereinafter referred to as "China Rubber Association") President Fan Rende recently in the "2012 China Rubber Annual Meeting," said that China's tire industry has been to promote the development of green tire industry consensus, the Association will refer to the EU tire label Law and REACH regulations, combined with China's energy saving requirements, in line with national conditions of the green tire industry regulations. The industry believes that this means that China's green tire industry strategy officially launched, the tire industry will adjust the industry, technological upgrading that a clear direction.

Green tire industry is imminent

"To the tire paste similar to the refrigerator energy efficiency label, through the fuel consumption, wet slippery surface grading and other indicators to promote tire performance improvement, and then achieve energy saving and environmental protection." Fan Rende said that China in the development of similar standards and norms only started, And the United States and Japan have a gap. He called on the EU enterprises, the government, the Association of three integrated model, the development of national standards, standards enterprises to give some subsidies, phased to promote the industrialization of green tires, and to promote the tire industry technology upgrades, inhibition of investment impulse to enhance industrial concentration Degree, enhance the international competitiveness of products, enhance the international image of Chinese products. According to the plan, China will reach 50% of the future enterprises can produce green tires, 25% of the enterprise green tire production more than ordinary radial tire goal. "The EU is the largest export market for tires in China, although the EU REACH (chemical registration, assessment, licensing and restrictions) and tire labeling regulations are typical non-tariff trade barriers, but the EU is the largest export market for tires. But also China's tire industry transformation and upgrading of the important opportunities, forcing China to adjust the tire industry as soon as possible industrial structure, the implementation of low-carbon economy strategy to promote the development of green tire industry. "Fan Ren said.

He said that after the Association has organized the relevant enterprises to study in Europe, and organized the tire label training, the next step will be developed by the Association and international standards, in line with national conditions of the green tire industry regulations.

According to the Deputy Secretary-General of the Rubber Association, Zhao Wenquan, director of the Technical and Economic Committee, the Ministry of Industry and Information Committee has held a round table on the issue of green tires and the EU concerned, and agreed in principle to the green tire project. By the Rubber Association led the green tire product self-discipline standard work has also started. The standard will be based on the EU label law, REACH and other international standards and regulations, the tire rolling resistance, slippery performance and noise and other indicators are defined, and according to China's actual situation, to be energy consumption, pollutant emissions, renovation and refund Indicators are included. After the introduction of self-discipline standards, will further apply for industry standards and national standards.

A number of tire business executives said that although the industrialization of green tires more difficult in the raw materials and processes need to be innovative, but to achieve tire product upgrades, improve international market share, the introduction of green tire standards, improve the relevant means of detection Should not be late Tire high performance into an inevitable trend

According to reports, the overall requirements of green tires include three aspects: First, green raw materials, raw materials, non-toxic harmless, in line with the EU REACH standards; Second, the green production process, to achieve low energy consumption, low noise, low dust, Production; three products green, to meet the fuel-efficient, safe, high wear-resistant, can be refurbished and other requirements.

Among them, high-performance raw materials on the green tires of great significance. Experts believe that in many countries and regions have implemented the tire labeling method and China's energy-saving emission reduction targets increased, the tire will become an inevitable trend of high performance.

Industry insiders pointed out that dissolved styrene-butadiene rubber (SSBR) can be used as high-performance tires tread rubber, improve tire performance. However, due to cost and processing technology considerations, most of our tire companies to use some of the cheaper prices of styrene-butadiene rubber, high-performance SSBR lower use. Moreover, the domestic SSBR is only equivalent to the first generation or second generation of foreign products, and abroad has now developed a third generation, fourth generation or even the fifth generation SSBR. The former in the product serialization and quality requirements with the tire business there is a certain gap.

SSBR manufacturers should increase investment in technology, increase SSBR product grades, and strive to improve product quality. "Industry experts say, SSBR manufacturers should increase the technical input, increase SSBR product grades, and strive to improve product quality." Industry experts say The

It is understood that China has in recent years has carried out a lot of styrene-butadiene rubber research and development and technological reform, such as Dalian University of Technology Institute of Chemical Industry and Yanshan Petrochemical Research Institute to n-butyl lithium as initiator initiator butadiene-styrene block copolymer, The copolymer has not only good physical and mechanical properties compared with ordinary polystyrene rubber, but also has low rolling resistance and high anti-slippery properties.
