FKM (Viton®) COATED POLYAMIDE 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.

Polyamide is a synthetic fiber formed of linear macromolecules having in the chain the recurring amide functional group. There are polyamides of low affinity and high affinity. They have low flammability, it starts to weaken at 180-200 ° C and melts at about 215-260 ° C. Good elasticity (greater than typical polyester). The polyamide yarn can have the strength of steel and fine wire of the spider. Depending on the weaving, the fabric may exhibit a very close silk appearance. Polyamide fabrics are often in the name of nylon which designated the base polyamide 6-6 whose current usage returns to generically polyamides.

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.
