THINNER REINFORCEMENT

The rubber compound in the working regions of a tire is the main cause of the rolling resistance. Select one of the below products to reduce the thickness of layers in your tires and get rid of some compound. .

 

Monoply Nylon6.6

1400dtex x 2 (1260den x 2) and 940dtex x 2 (840den x 2) are the most widely used Nylon 6.6 cords used for carcass and capply applications. Did you know that a Monoply 1400dtex x 1 can function similarly as a 1400dtex x 2 capply fabric and reduce rubber compound need by up to 40%?

Initiate a project to thin down your capply with Kordsa Monoply products.

High Tenacity PET

New generation Kordsa PET fabrics can reduce the rubber compound by up to 30%. One example is the Kordsa 1100dtex x 2 (1000den x 2) which functions same as a 1440dtex x 2 PET carcass fabric.

Initiate a project to thin down your carcass with Kordsa High Tenacity PET products.

Twixtra

Twixtra is the hybrid cord design service for you to replace your standard material with aramid (Kevlar or Twaron). Hybrid cords are the highest standard capply material used commercially and they can reduce rubber compound use up to 80%.

Did you know hybrid cords are widely used in the most prominent high performance tires?

Initiate a project to thin down your capply by a Twixtra hybrid cord customized for your tire.

Monolyx

Monolyx is a twisted monofilament cord. A single Monolyx 810dtex x 3 construction can replace a double layer 1400dtex x 2 (1260den x 2) capply which can reduce rubber compound need up to 40%. Heavier or lighter constructions are available. Monolyx is an extremely durable cord and should last much longer in harsh conditions like in off-road or very high speeds.

High Modulus Nylon 6.6

Modulus, in simple terms, in tire universe, is a measure of the resistance against elongation under a load. We help our customers increase their fabric modulus to reduce their compound need for higher speed tires. Up to 40% reduction in rubber compound need is possible.

Initiate a project to thin down your capply by Kordsa high modulus fabrics.

Low dtex/denier Nylon 6.6

Tire producers heavily use standard dtex / denier yarns which are 940dtex (840den) and 1400dtex (1260den). What if the selected yarns are too heavy for your specific tire? Kordsa provides fabric designs with 470dtex (420den) which help reducing the rubber compound by up to 40%.

Initiate a project to thin down your capply by Kordsa low dtex/denier.

ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE

 

Designed for driving pleasure and performance, UHP tires have a wider tread surface that is stickier than the standard. In order to maximize handling, the sidewall is also short and stiff. Due to the high stress and heat exposure extraordinary dimensional and adhesive reinforcement performance is expected.


ZERO ROTATIONAL GROWTH


The reinforcement need to keep the rotating elements in their place increases quadratically with speed therefore special products might be needed for V, W, Y, Z speed rating tires.

 
 

Twixtra

Twixtra is the hybrid cord design service for you to replace your standard material with aramid (Kevlar or Twaron). Hybrid cords are the highest standard capply material used commercially and they can stop tire growth completely at high speeds thanks to aramids extraordinary high modulus and low creep properties.

INCREASED HEAT STABILITY

At high speeds the heat generation also increases which causes polymeric reinforcement material to soften. This can cause pre-mature failures in extreme cases or lower high speed performance in best case.

 

 

Dimensionally Stable PET

Rayon is an effective reinforcement in such elevated temperatures however did you know that more and more tire designers are choosing Kordsa dimensionally stable PET fabrics because of their cost competitiveness compared to Rayon?

Initiate a project to add heat stability in your V, W, Y, Z speed tires with Kordsa dimensionally stable PET fabrics.

INCREASED DURABILITY

At high speeds, the heat generation in tire increases which cause the PET adhesion to drop while harmful cutting forces around the belt can cause capply filaments get damaged.

Check the following Kordsa products to increase durability.

 

 

Monolyx

Monolyx is a twisted monofilament cord. Monolyx is an extremely durable cord because of its very thick filaments and should last much longer in harsh conditions like in off-road or very high speeds.

HarTech

HarTech is the abbreviation for Kordsa’s High adhesion retention Technology. Standard PET adhesion drops under heat exposure while Kordsa HarTech preserves its adhesion level for a much extended time.

EXTENDED MOBILITY

 

Whether for self-driving cars, car sharing or still for owned mobility new concepts that save time and effort for tire maintenance and replacement are rising. Run-flat is such a concept that can provide a short ride to the next tire shop while the tire is heated up extremely.


INCREASED DURABILITY


If the tire pressure drops abruptly the heat generation in tire increases which cause the PET adhesion to drop while harmful cutting forces around the belt can cause capply filaments get damaged.

Check the following Kordsa products to increase durability.

PRODUCTION EFFICIENCY

 

Light vehicle sales grew historically in parallel to the GDP. Accordingly average 2016-2024 global light vehicle sales growth is 2.6% while the tire sales grew in parallel also. The best way to catch up with the continuously increasing demand is to get more efficiency out of the existing facility.



INCREASED PRODUCTION OUTPUT


Imagine a reinforcement material which doesn’t need to be calendared. What happens? Tire capacity per day can easily be increased without investing a mass amount of money in an expensive calendaring unit.

 
 

Capmax

Capmax is the ready to use capply material of Kordsa which doesn’t need to be calendered and cuted. It is ideal to be used if production capacity is needed to be increased without massive investments.

Initiate a project to increase of your tire production facility with Kordsa’s Capmax.

INCREASED THROUGHPUT

Production throughput for a calendered fabric can be described as the time necessary to produce a constant amount of material.

 

 

Heavy dtex PET / Nylon6.6

Kordsa offers 2800dtex (2520den) Nylon6.6 and 3300dtex (3000den) PET yarns and can produce much heavier yarns if required. By increasing the weight of the calendared fabric, your tire production facilities efficiency can be significantly improved.

Initiate a project to improve efficiency of your tire production facility with Kordsa heavy dtex fabrics.

LESS SCRAP

Scrap in production is detrimental for the production efficiency

 

 

Highest SEC Quality

The quality expectation for single end cords (SEC) is extremely high due to the thin passage ways in mini rubberizing equipments in tire facilities. Kordsa quality systems utilize the leading edge technologies to detect and separate the best quality yarns to be used in SEC operations.

Initiate a project to reduce scrap with highest SEC Quality Kordsa products.
