Mechanical Rubber Goods
New eco-friendly yarn coating innovation for adhesion to rubber. Traditional mechanical rubber goods like hoses, transmission belts, and conveyor dipped cords use RFL-dipped or isocynate coated textile yarns to achieve high adhesive strengths during rubber vulcanization. Coats has developed a unique new eco-friendly coating that is made from natural tree oils. When applied in an energy efficient manner to filament yarns like polyester, para aramids and meta aramids, it produces a coated yarn with equal or higher adhesive pull out strengths compared to RFL which is essentially a resorcinol formaldehyde latex compound. This new eco-friendly coating complex has been trialed successfully to adhere to different types of neoprene and nitrile rubbers.
