Featuring the company's UNI-T Technology, The Bridgestone Blizzak WS60 incorporates the latest Bridgestone tire innovations including NanoPro-Tech and RC Polymer technologies.
NanoPro-Tech is a Bridgestone proprietary technology that controls the interaction between polymer, filler materials (carbon black, silica) and other rubber chemicals at the molecular level. RC Polymer is a specific NanoPro-Tech butadiene rubber that is specifically designed to react with silica. The RC Polymer, as a part of the overall tread rubber compound, improves tread flexibility to provide enhanced wet and snow traction.
The Blizzak WS60 also contains Tube Multicell compound which wicks water away from the tire’s contact patch to improve the tire's grip. Bite particles, attached to the tubes of the Multicell compound, held tight by a special coating, bite into the surface of the ice and provide extra gripping action. 3-D zigzag sipes work to disperse water away from the tire’s contact patch, further enhancing grip.
