The demanding requirements on modern sport shoes have also changed the requirements for the shoe sole. Soles based on carbon black as rubber filler are now replaced by silica filled compounds for improved grip on wet streets. The rubber silane is essential to improve the elasticity and wear properties.
Particularly in light colored or even transparent shoe soles with highest requirements on abrasion resistance the Silica/Silane-system has become the benchmark. Ask our experts to achieve the best possible properties!
