Tires & Rubber Goods

OMNOVA produces a wide breadth of chemistries for enhancing tires, manufactured rubber goods (MRG), footwear, and rubber foam and other components. We are a recognized global leader in the manufacture of latex for tire cord and MRG fabric dipping. Our Pliocord and GenTac vinyl pyridine (VP) latices provide excellent adhesion of synthetic fabric to rubber. These products are used in conjunction with resorcinol and formaldehyde, as well as other resins to promote adhesion to nylon, rayon, polyester, aramid and glass cords used in tires and mechanical goods.

We also offer Chemigum and Sunigum reinforcing resins used to impart strength in a variety of rubber applications. These products are utilized across the transportation, construction, industrial and personal/household markets for a variety of performance attributes, such as flexibility, retention of plasticizer in PVC, modulus, soft hand, matte finish and resistance to oil, chemicals and extreme temperatures. In addition, our elastomeric modifiers and antioxidants enhance the flexibility and longevity of rubber goods, respectively.
