Material Substitution - DuraFiber Technologies



Material Substitution

Polyester being most versatile polymer base we embarked on expanding its use in high-value applications where we leveraged its strengths such as low moisture regain, lower creep, low shrinkage, and complimented them with technical solutions that overcome its limitations such as poor adhesion properties. Substitution of Nylon and Rayon in
tires, rubberized products, and other industrial applications allows our customers to achieve cost savings without sacrificing performance. 

 

TEXDURA™ NX- Nylon Alternative

  • Designed for substitution of Nylon 6 and Nylon 6 based reinforcements and fabrics such as tire cap ply, bias carcass, hoses and belts

  • Low moisture regain eliminates heating and drying during processing

  • Low shrinkage delivers superior uniformity and reduction in scrap rate

  • Engineered cord design promotes drop-in substitution requiring minimal design and tooling changes

  • 2X initial modulus reduces creep and growth this significantly reducing flat-spotting in tires

  • Advanced adhesion systems customized for customer’s rubber compounds deliver equivalent and in some cases superior adhesion

TEXDURA™ RX- Rayon Alternative

  • Designed for substitution of rayon in carcass of HP and run flat tires and hoses

  • Low moisture regain eliminates heating and drying during processing

  • Ultra-low shrinkage and ultra high modulus HMLS delivers rayon like dimensional and higher thermal stability

  • Engineered cord design promotes drop-in substitution requiring minimal design and tooling changes

  • Advanced adhesion systems customized for customer’s rubber compounds deliver equivalent and in some cases superior adhesion
