A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11920032B2) discloses a cross-linkable rubber composition that includes natural rubber, a filler (such as carbon black), and a resin. The composition is characterized by the presence of a terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester, and maleic anhydride in specific amounts. The natural rubber is required to be present in at least 60 parts per hundred rubber (phr), while the carbon black filler should be within a range of =40 to =70 phr. Additionally, the terpolymer content should range from =10 to =15 phr.

Furthermore, the patent claims cover a cross-linked rubber composition obtained by cross-linking the aforementioned rubber composition. The cross-linked rubber composition is specified to have certain properties, including a tan delta value at 70°C, a storage modulus G', a rebound value, tensile strength, and a payne value G' at a specific strain and temperature. The patent also extends to a tire design featuring a rim cushion made from the cross-linked rubber composition, emphasizing the application of the innovative material in practical use cases within the automotive industry.
