Precipitated silica and carbon black are the major ingredients used as reinforcing filler in tires to improve adhesion and to enhance tire tread wear resistance.Currently, precipitated silica is used in conjunction with carbon black as a reinforcing filler for tires.

However, the trend is shifting towards the complete replacement of carbon black by precipitated silica, owing to the eco-friendly nature and superior performance delivered by the latter.

Specialty silica is widely employed in the manufacturing of green tires.Silica-filled tires are widely used as they aid in decreasing rolling resistance of an automotive which results in improved mileage and better handling.

Rising demand for green tires, particularly from Asia Pacific, North America, and Europe is expected to have a positive impact on the market over the next seven years.

The product is used as non-reactive filler on account of its high absorption capacity and large surface area.It is used as thickening and reinforcing agent in adhesives.

It has profound usage in conveyor as well transmission belts, wherein it provides abrasion resistance, high tensile strength, and improves tear resistance.Specialty silica is also utilized to eliminate caking tendency and to improve powder flowability, stability during storage, and the productivity of agrochemical products.
