The state-of-art test facility exceeds American Society for Testing and Materials requirements for Inflation Pressure Loss Rate testing.
ExxonMobil has expanded the tire testing capabilities of its Shanghai Technology Center. The company added a new state-of-the-art Inflation Pressure Loss Rate (IPLR) test room that evaluates a tire’s air pressure loss rate over time.
“With one in every three cars in the world being manufactured in China, we are committed to helping shape the country’s tire industry through ongoing investment in technology and people,” said Kurt Aerts, specialty elastomers and butyl rubber Vice President, ExxonMobil Chemical Company. “These new capabilities place us closer to our customers so that we can better serve their needs.”
Opened in 2011, the Shanghai Technology Center is a 27,000 square meter full-service customer support facility.
