Bonding Textiles to Rubber

  • Thomas S. Solomon

Abstract

When J. B. Dunlop made his first pneumatic tire in 1888, Irish flax was used as the reinforcing material. Cotton, however, quickly replaced flax because of material cost savings, and cotton was used in tires until World War II. It was used with no adhesive treatment since the mechanical interlocking brought about by protruding filament ends was enough to adhere cotton cord to the rubber. However, as tire performance requirements became more demanding it was necessary to use man-made fibers as reinforcing materials.
