Conti, Kordsa partner on adhesion system

Continental A.G.’s tire division and Kordsa Inc. recently entered into a joint initiative to develop a sustainable adhesion system standard for bonding textile reinforcing materials to rubber-based compounds. The two companies aim to have a free licensing concept and replace resorcinol and formaldehyde with more eco-friendly chemicals for adhesion. Continental and Kordsa worked together previously on other projects in the tire textile reinforcement market.

“Continental has to build and test the new technology according to a complex and extensive approval process in tires to ensure that the latest status of technology can be offered without compromising any performance,” said Boris Mergell, Conti senior vice president of research and development for passenger and light truck tires.

Further details will be presented at Tire Expo 2018, which will take place in February in Hanover.
