  The present invention has been made in view of the solution of the above-mentioned problems. By blending a high Tg and low Tg resin component into a silica compounded rubber composition, the fuel efficiency of the silica compounded rubber composition is improved. An object of the present invention is to provide a rubber composition for a tire tread having improved dry and wet handling stability, low temperature performance, and processability without impairing the performance.

According to the present invention, 30 to 150 parts by weight of a reinforcing filler containing 10 parts by weight or more of silica having a BET specific surface area of 100 to 300 m 2 / g with respect to 100 parts by weight of diene rubber, and the amount of silane coupling agent added to silica In the rubber composition for a tire tread formed by blending 0.1 to 15% by weight with respect to
(1) Tg: terpene resin having a temperature of 50 to 120 ° C. At least one kind of rosin ester compound obtained by reacting rosin and ester at 10 ° C. is in the range of blending ratio (1) :( 2) = 20: 80-80: 20, and the total blending amount is 1-20 wt. A partially blended rubber composition for tire treads is provided.

  In the present invention, the problem of deterioration in processability and dry performance in the silica compounded rubber composition is that a high Tg terpene resin and a low Tg terpene liquid resin and / or a low Tg rosin ester have a predetermined compounding ratio. Thus, it has been found that a predetermined amount can be solved at once by blending with a silica-blended rubber composition.

  As said high Tg terpene resin mix | blended with the rubber composition for tire treads of this invention, Tg: 50-120 degreeC, More preferably, the terpene resin of 60-100 degreeC is used. As such a terpene resin, a terpene resin, a hydrogenated terpene resin, a terpene phenol resin, an aromatic modified terpene resin, or the like is selected and used.

  The low Tg (a) terpene-based liquid resin blended in the tire tread rubber composition of the present invention has a Tg of −50 to 10 ° C., more preferably −40 to 0 ° C., and a hydroxyl value: A terpene-based liquid resin of 120 mg / KOH or less, preferably 100 mg / KOH or less is used. As such terpene-based liquid resin, for example, a terpene resin, a hydrogenated terpene resin, a terpene phenol resin, an aromatic modified resin, or the like is selected and used.

  In addition, the low Tg (b) rosin ester compound blended in the tire tread rubber composition of the present invention has a Tg of -50 to 10 ° C, more preferably -40 to 0 ° C. A compound is used. Examples of such rosin ester compounds include (a) rosins such as tall oil, tall oil resin and tall oil fatty acid, and (b) various monovalent or polyhydric alcohols (among these, preferred ones are: Ester compounds with ethylene glycol, diethylene glycol, triethylene glycol, propylene glycol, etc.) are used.

  In the tire tread rubber composition of the present invention, the blend ratio of the high Tg terpene resin and at least one of the low Tg (a) terpene liquid resin and (b) rosin ester compound is 20:80. -80: 20, more preferably in the range of 30: 70-70: 30, with respect to 100 parts by weight of the diene rubber composition, the total blending amount is 1-20 parts by weight, more preferably 1.5-15 parts by weight. Is used in an amount of. When the blending ratio of the high Tg terpene resin is less than 20 or more than 80, the balance between the dry performance and the wet performance is deteriorated, and the workability improvement effect is small, which is not preferable. If the total amount is less than 1 part by weight, the desired effect cannot be exhibited. Conversely, if it exceeds 20 parts by weight, heat generation (low fuel consumption) and wear resistance are deteriorated, which is not preferable.

  Examples of the diene rubber component used in the tire tread rubber composition of the present invention include natural rubber (NR), polyisoprene rubber (IR), various butadiene rubbers (BR), and various styrene-butadiene copolymers. Rubber (SBR), acrylonitrile-butadiene copolymer rubber (NBR), chloroprene rubber, ethylene-propylene-diene copolymer rubber, styrene-isoprene copolymer rubber, styrene-isoprene-butadiene copolymer rubber, isoprene-butadiene Synthetic rubbers such as copolymer rubbers may be mentioned, and the rubber components may be used alone or in admixture of two or more.

Up to 150 parts by weight, preferably 40 to 120 parts by weight are used. If the compounding amount of the silica is less than 10 parts by weight, a low heat-generating rubber composition cannot be obtained. Conversely, if the compounding amount of the reinforcing filler containing silica exceeds 150 parts by weight, the workability and wear resistance are reduced. This is not preferable because the properties and the like are lowered. As the reinforcing filler other than silica, usually, carbon black or the like is preferably used, but is not limited thereto.

  In the rubber composition for a tire tread of the present invention, a silane coupling agent that is usually blended with silica is blended and used in an amount of 0.1 to 15% by weight, preferably 4 to 10% by weight of the blended amount of silica. As such a silane coupling agent, any of the silane coupling agents generally used in the tire rubber composition may be used alone or in combination.

  The rubber composition for a tire tread of the present invention is further added with a usual vulcanization or crosslinking agent, a vulcanization or crosslinking accelerator, an anti-aging agent, a filler, a plasticizer, and other various compounding agents blended for tire rubber. The compounding agent can be kneaded by a general method to obtain a rubber composition, which can be vulcanized or crosslinked. The compounding amounts of these compounding agents can be set to conventional general compounding amounts as long as the object of the present invention is not violated.
