Yokohama Orange Oil Tyres
Orange oil provides grip.
Orange oil technology helps solve the grip problem present in low rolling resistance eco tyres. It allows motorists to save money by using less fuel without compromising grip for safe and confident driving.
Typically, orange oil is used in detergents and perfumes. The oil doesn't come from the sweet, sticky part of the fruit. It comes from the orange peel. It’s quite acidic and when it touches rubber it softens it.
Orange oil keeps the rubber tyre compound soft and flexible at a micro level so it grips the road. More importantly it works in cold and wet conditions when rubber normally hardens and loses grip.
