The European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers Association (ETRMA) today issued the following statement in response to a report on a recent study from the University of Washington and published in the media:
The tyre industry uses 6PPD because it helps tyres resist degradation and cracking, which is vital for passenger safety.
The tyre industry is reviewing the initial findings contained in the recent publication and remains strongly committed to a continued dialogue with stakeholders, including the scientific community. We are confident that the continuous cooperation with suppliers, regulators, academia, customers and other stakeholders, is essential to advance the collective understanding and achieve the objective of a safe and sustainable mobility.
