AGRICULTURAL

LOW SOIL COMPACTION

Soil compaction is simply decrease of soil porosity due to externally applied loads such as from tires. The densified, less porous soil lets less air and water through which is detrimental for plants and other living organisms.

A longer tire life cycle simply reduces the management and maintenance costs. Up to 70% of the tires end their lives because of rock damage when running off-the-road. In some hazardous environments like mining on high silicate containing grounds, 100% of the tires may get removed because of rock damage.

LARGER FOOTPRINT AREA

 

A trivial method in agricultural tractor applications is to reduce pressure to increase the footprint area. These type of tires that are designed for low tire pressure are called floatation tires.

 

 

Kordsa Nylon 6.6

Highly durable and tough Kordsa Nylon6.6 material is the best solution for agricultural tires where larger footprint areas are required by lowering the pressure. Low tire pressure is however much more dangerous than high pressure because cords are damaged under the high compressive loads. In addition to that heat generation of tire increases due to excessive deformations and loads. Therefore Kordsa Nylon6.6 performs much better than PET.

Initiate a project to make durable floatation tires with Kordsa Nylon6.6 products.

BETTER FOOTPRINT FORCE DISTRIBUTION

A larger footprint area does not mean necessarily an even force distribution on the ground. An even force distribution can be guaranteed by a strong belt / breaker design.

 

 

Kordsa PET

PET is a higher modulus stiff material compared to Nylon6.6. This makes it a better choice for belt /breaker applications than Nylon6.6.

Initiate a project to make agricultural tires with more flat crown areas and better footprint with Kordsa PET.

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 for commercial purpose. Due to similarity of needs in capply and agriculture breaker requirements, hybrids or directly aramid can be used as a breaker to get flat crown areas and a better footprint.

Monolyx

Monolyx is a twisted monofilament cord. Monolyx, due to its low twist and high bending stiffness, is a better breaker / belt reinforcement than the standard multifilament cords. Heavier or lighter constructions are available. Monolyx is an extremely durable cord and should last much longer in harsh conditions such as off-road.

INCREASED TIRE LIFE

 

A longer tire life cycle simply reduces the management and maintenance costs. Especially, in downtimes due to the tire damage are detrimental for the business owner.

BETTER CORD TO COMPOUND ADHESION

In big agricultural tires, long curing cycles in the tire mold could be detrimental for the tire’s remaining life. In a similar way under low inflation, the increased heat generation is also a serious problem for the cords’ adhesion.

 
 

HarTech

In case, PET is used as a reinforcement material adhesion becomes more critical. 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.

Initiate a project to improve your tire life by improving PET adhesion with HarTech.

ZERO GROWTH TIRES

Tire growth is a serious problem of big tires reinforced with synthetic fibers. This is caused because of the creeping property of polymers. When tires grow the rubber compound around it gets stressed and can be cut, damaged or worn more easily.

 

 

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 eliminate tire growth in big tires.

Initiate a project to eliminate tire growth with Kordsa high modulus fabrics.

Post Cure Inflation

In passenger car tires Post Cure Inflation (PCI) has become an industry standard. Did you know that you can use the same principle to eliminate tire growth in combination with Kordsa high modulus fabrics?

Initiate a project to eliminate tire growth with Kordsa high modulus fabrics in combination with a custom fit PCI unit.

CUT/PENETRATION RESISTANCE

Agricultural tires may get exposed to sharp objects that can cut or penetrate inside which can cause the field operation to stop and create a significant economic cost.

 

 

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. Due to similarity of needs in capply and agriculture breaker requirements, hybrids or directly aramid can be used as a breaker to make the belt / breaker packager more cut resistant.
