The high frequency dynamic testing shows that the longitudinal coefficient nearly doubles with the use of 50 phr BIMS, in comparison to the sSBR/NR control.
The high-frequency acoustic temperature sweeps also show that the maximum of the longitudinal coefficient values is shifted to higher temperatures with increased use of BIMS (table 6; refs.
