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.
Cotton is a natural fiber of vegetal origin. The cotton thread is derived from the transormation of Gossypium bristles (or cotton). Commonly we also referred under the same name the fabric after the weaving of the wire. Cotton is the first textile fiber used in the world despite the advent of synthetic fibers. It is inflamable and starts decomposition at 160 ° C. Cotton is popular thanks to its characteristics: aspect, lightness, comfort and ease of assembly and processing.
Styrene Butadiene Rubber, mostly known as SBR, is one of the best options when applied to general purposes. Compared to natural rubber, SBR shows better abrasion resistance and heat-aging properties. Though, the resilience and the physical properties tend to be lower than those of Natural Rubber.
