Polyethelene napthalate-Nylon Hybrids (PEN-NY Hybrids):
PEN has higher dimensional stability than that of PET. However its tire cord processing is similar to PET. Replacing PET with PEN in PET-NY hybrids can lead to better dimensionally stable hybrids. At the same thickness level, PEN-NY hybrid cords with higher modulus can be considered as an ideal material for high modulus requirements. PEN-NY and PET-NY have both acceptable adhesion levels under the same dipping solutions and dipping conditions.
