Soft cord is twisted or threaded raw yarn which is coated with one or several substrates to create adhesion to rubber mixtures. Primary features are soft haptics, low stiffness and the water-based chemical system.
Stiff cord is twisted yarn which is impregnated with solvent-free or solvent-based fittings. Multi-layer systems are possible as well. The pre-dip ensures a rigidity or cut resistance defined by the customer and results to the filaments of the individual yarn being glued in the twist system.
Specific yarn by MEP represents a significant expansion of our portfolio, adding to our familiar product range of raw materials, fibers and rubber-friendly fittings. We are open for any type of request regarding new raw materials and fibers and also offer coating and fitting services with alternative substrates.
Untreated yarn are fiber raw materials which are twisted up as yarn or twisted together as thread. Typically, this technical yarn is not coated. We use different materials in various presentations to manufacture twisted yarn and thread.
