TCC – Compound Formula in Cooper Tires

TCC – Compound Formula in Cooper Tires


If you spent as much time researching
ties as you do when buying a car, you would always choose Cooper Tires. Cars
have come a long way since they were first invented. They were hard to control and
didn’t even have brakes. Today cars are a lot safer and reliable and way back then.
ABS braking, airbags, traction control, even seatbelts and air conditioning, are
all improvements made over time that we now take for granted. There is a massive
difference among car brands and models and it comes down to technology. Well
just as with cars not all tyres are the same. They look similar but there is a
massive difference in technology and that matters. You tyres are the single
most important safety feature on your vehicle. So take a closer look at the
difference of latest generation in tyre technology makes to safety, stability,
strength, performance and value for money. We’d like to help you get more involved
in choosing your next set of tyres. You can work out whether a tyre has the
latest generation technology by looking at three things. The tread design, the way
the tYre is built or its carcass and the materials used to build it, its compound
All you need to remember is to TCC. That’s ‘Tread’, ‘Carcass’ and ‘Compound’. Right now, let’s look at tire compound, the mix or recipe of ingredients that determines
the tyres grip and wear characteristics. There’s a lot of technology and
chemistry that goes into Cooper’s latest generation rubber compound. It’s like
each tyre has its own magic recipe and getting this formula right is something
of an art. Plastic comes from the same basic ingredient. We’ve all experienced
that the quality of plastic can differ dramatically. Some are cheap and brittle
and break easily, and some are more durable stronger and more flexible. They
look the same but they’re certainly not. It’s the same with tyres. Cooper had been
developing leading compounds for over a century, making tyres renowned for safety, stability, strength, and performance. Today Cooper uses this amazing ingredient
called silica. Used properly, couple silica works like this. Like a Cooper
tyre, this ball has high content silica, while this ball is just like most other
brands with low or no silica at all. Without silica the plain rubber
ball has high rebound. In the ball with high silica the rebound is reduced. In a
tyre that simply means more contact with the ground, less bounce, less
friction, better grip and more mileage. Now many other brands claim to use
silica but if it’s not chemically infused couple silica, mixed with other
materials in a certain way, these benefits just aren’t delivered. The magic
lies in how it’s added. That’s what makes the greatest difference.
Imagine baking a cake with chocolate chips that don’t melt or blend it
becomes part of the mixture. You’re going to end up with a lumpy cake with
occasional chocolate taste. Compare that to a cake made with
chocolate chips all melted together, you get a uniform taste with every bite. In
building tyes with all the benefits of silica, this latest generation mixing
process is known as coupled silica. Cooper uses up to four times more coupled silica throughout the range the extra grip combined with Cooper’s strength,
means more miles without sacrificing grip. For wet weather breaking or an
emergency lane change, you’ll appreciate the extra grip of coupedl silica. And
remember your tires are the single most important safety feature on your vehicle.
With Cooper tires you get the latest technology in tread design, carcass
construction and compound formula, for strength, safety, stability, performance
and value for money. Tested and proven in Australia with a mileage warranty of up
to 80,000k’s, you get a tyre designed to go the distance and that’s what makes
Cooper tyres worth owning
