BENEFITS

  • Minimized raw material expenses thru rubber saving

  • Eliminate compound mixing, calendering and slitting process for cap ply

  • Direct load on service module in green tire building phase

  • Utilized tire manufacturing process with waste reduction.

  • Reduced energy consumption

  • Less production costs

  • Less capital expenditure for the new investments and expansion projects

Application

During tire building, passenger car and light commercial vehicle tire makers coat the reinforcement fabrics with rubber by calendering process and then slit the calendered fabrics to apply on ply assembling.

Capmax® is designed to replace the current "calendered-cap ply" material. It can be directly applied at tire building machines. Since there is no need for the calendering and cutting processes, processing costs are cut and capital investment costs are lowered. Tire manufacturers can use excess calender capacity for the production of other components. As a result of green tackiness which eliminates cap ply compound usage without sacrificing adhesion, the total rubber cost can also be reduced significantly. The scrap coming from calendering and cutting process can also be eliminated with the advantage of precisely cut strip according to your specifications.
