FKM (Viton®) COATED ARAMID TIRE CORD

Tire cord fabric is a type of industrial fabric which is constructed using High Tenacity yarns in the warp direction and yarns of negligible resistance in weft direction which is used to hold warn yarns locked in their position. Tire cord coated fabrics provides fundamental properties such as controlled deformation, high strength, abrasion resistance, etc. Widely used by the tire industry, it is also employed for the rubber hose manufacture, air springs, expansion joints, among many other applications.

Fiber consisting of a long chain polymer containing amines and aromatic components. Infusible, does not melt, does not burn, does not soften. Besides it shows low emission of toxic gases while combustion. Certain aramid can decompose at 500 ° C, It is thermostable up to 250 ° C.
FKM (Viton®), is a fluorinated synthetic rubber. It has excellent chemical inertness, excellent resistance to high temperatures, chemicals, lubricants, solvents and aggressive fuels. FKM also detain a good mechanical properties.
