Kordsa, a global player in the tyre and construction reinforcement and composites technologies markets participated in Tire Tech Expo, Europe’s most important tyre manufacturing technology exhibition, which took place from 25-27 February in Germany.

“Reinforcement leader Kordsa participated once more in Tire Tech Expo, one of the World’s most important tire manufacturing technology exhibition and conference. At the fair held in Hannover, Germany between 25-27 February, Kordsa exhibited its tire reinforcement products as well as its sustainable and innovative technologies developed with its ‘Inspired to Reinforce Life’ vision,” Kordsa said today.

“During the fair was also showcased the Cokoon dip technology developed with Continental as an eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to the formula used in the industry for nearly a century.”

“Kordsa develops reinforcement technologies to increase unique moments in life and reinforces this understanding with its “Inspired to Reinforce Life” vision. At its high-tech tire reinforcement facilities, the company manufactures tire cord fabric that provides flexibility and durability by using nylon 6.6, polyester (HMLS and technical), rayon and by processing aramid yarn.”

Kordsa also manufactures single end cord by using yarns made from synthetic yarns such as nylon, polyester, aramid and rayon. Besides the capacity increase following the inauguration of its new production line at its Izmit facility in April 2019, Kordsa now produces new generation high strength polyester yarn with improved dimensional stability in addition to the standard HMLS polyester yarn.

“Kordsa reinforces every one out of every three automobile tyres in the world and two out of every three aircraft tyres and develops environmentally friendly technologies that reduce rolling resistance by putting sustainability at the centre of its work,” the company concluded.
