TIP continues to support studies into tire and road wear particles (TRWP). For a multimedia introduction to the topic of TRWP and a detailed account of the studies that TIP has sponsored to-date, visit www.tireparticles.info
TIP supported studies into nanomaterials include:
This report describes the methods utilized in a 2019 TIP-commissioned project to generate cryogenically milled tire tread (CMTT) particles - link
Using the TIP methodology, the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA) will produce CMTT and provide samples to researchers to advance scientific study on TRWP. Researchers can request samples via the USTMA website. Complementing the USTMA initiative, TIP has committed to make representative CMTT available for other regions by the end of 2022.
