Tire Cords

Overview

Since its launch of tire cord business in 1973, KOLON Industries, Inc. has been recognized for its quality and technology by both domestic and international companies, including Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear, Continental. Tire cord fabrics are used as reinforcing materials for tires and designed to keep tires in shape and support vehicle weight, having a significant impact on tire performance. In the manufacturing process, after polymerization and spinning, high-quality nylon and polyester yarns get twisted and woven into fabrics. Then an adhesive solution (latex) is added to the fabrics to increase bonding between the fabrics and rubber. Finally, the products are heat-treated to improve the dimensional stability of tire cord fabrics.

Features and Uses

POLYESTER TIRE CORD
High dimensional stability, few flat spots, excellent heat resistance and controllability; mainly used in radial tires for passenger cars.
NYLON66 TIRE CORD
Mainly used as apply to prevent separation between cords and belts when tire is spinning.
