There are many brands of tires but there are brands that have been with us for so long that their reputation is a deal maker. Such is the case with Continental Tires, changing the industry one innovation at a time.
They’re Not Just Rubber Anymore
Technology has improved tires but we all think of rubber when we think tires. Traditionally, tires have been made from rubber, a totally renewable resource. But, it takes seven years to be able to tap the rubber trees to make tires. The trouble is, the number of cars produced that need tires out number the trees that can be tapped to make tires.
Continental, thinking outside of the box, discovered that dandelions of all things — yes, the little yellow weeds you brought your mom when you were a child. Well, there is a natural rubber that can be made from creating a polymer out of dandelions. You might want to start planting dandelions as a cash crop soon. Russian dandelions were discovered to be the heartiest.
Another polymer was created by Continental using a compound made of black chili, this time for bicycle tires. These tires adjust the tire’s surface grip to push water away from the tire.
