Dow to Supply Polyurethane for Improved Bicycle Tires

Dow Chemical (China) and Beijing Mobike Technology have agreed to develop a long-term partnership to develop lighter weight and eco-friendlier bicycles – all with the help of polyurethane!

Mobike introduced its latest bike model at a celebration to mark its one-year anniversary. The new bicycle uses Dow’s polyurethane materials for insert tires. Dow says, compared with the traditional solid rubber tire, the insert helps reduce weight by 20 percent while improving shock absorption and durability – so your bike ride will feel a lot smoother!
