Kuraray will present its own racing kart and racing tyres based on ­Kuraray Liquid Rubber.

Kuraray will be presenting new bio-based Liquid Farnesene Rubber grades, as well as Kuraray Liquid Rubber (K-LR) products for enhanced compound processing. Liquid rubber derived from isoprene, butadiene, styrene and butadiene or the newly developed bio-based monomer Farnesene are widely used as high molecular weight, co-vulcanisable plasticisers. In rubber manufacturing, improvements in processing and physical properties can be achieved. Liquid rubbers are produced and used corresponding to their “solid” counter types. Therefore advantages can be demonstrated beyond a pure plasticising effect.
