The challenge for today’s hose manufacturers is to meet the ever-increasing demands of industry and OEMs for higher working pressures, more flexible handling, excellent dynamic performance, greater durability, and safer, “greener” products. SKS meets these diverse demands with a wide range of high-tech yarns for hose reinforcement.
Today, belts in both the automotive and the industrial/agricultural sectors are being required to transmit ever higher forces. More and more aggregates are being driven by single belts, so to extend their lifetimes, belt components need to have high resistance to fatigue. In addition, in the automotive industry, belts are increasingly replacing metal chains as part of the drive to reduce CO2 emissions. SKS offers a range of high-tech cords that allow belt manufacturers to meet these new demands and develop their products accordingly.
High uniformity and clean, perfect processing are the key requirements that today’s tire manufacturers have of Single End Cord (SEC). The use of SEC in specific production methods is gaining ground due to higher efficiency and flexibility of the manufacturing process. For many years, SKS has been a key supplier of SEC, offering a tailored portfolio of high-tech SEC.
