PPG has been working with the global tire industry since the 1930s, when it introduced the first reinforcing fillers formulated from precipitated silica. Today, PPG remains on the leading edge of innovation, offering tire manufacturers advanced products such as AGILON® performance silica – a revolutionary new technology platform– and HI-SIL® classical and highly dispersible silica products, a trusted industry brand for more than 50 years.

Agilon Performance Silica
Formulated by mixing silica, silane and proprietary additives during the precipitation process and delivered to tire plants as a single, advanced compounding ingredient, Agilon performance silica is engineered to be the foundation for a new generation of performance-related technical developments in the tire industry. Whether the goal is to reduce rolling resistance, increase traction, extend wear or pursue all three objectives at once, AGILON performance silica creates a new range of possibilities that reach beyond the scope of traditional silica products.

Agilon performance silica provides significant process-related benefits, too. By removing the silica-silane mixing process from the plant environment, this cutting-edge material enables tire manufacturers to:

• Simplify their mixing operations
• Accelerate production and increase throughput
• Reduce energy usage; and
• Virtually eliminate alcohol-related VOC emissions

Hi-Sil Silica Products
Hi-Sil silica products are available in a broad range of formulations to help tire makers achieve specific performance and/or process-related demands. Each product is quality-controlled for surface area, particle size, and other physical properties to impart specific performance characteristics to meet a variety of tire-making needs.

With manufacturing operations in the U.S. and Europe, and technical and customer support facilities staffed by experienced personnel around the world, PPG is strategically positioned to help tire makers maximize their investment in PPG products and technology.
