This book explores the history of and recent developments in the use of textiles in rubber composites, from the technology of yarn production to the details of fabric construction. The five core fabric materials used in rubber reinforcement – cotton, rayon, polyester, nylon and aramid – are covered in detail. Adhesion of fabrics to the rubber matrix is also discussed, and tests for measuring adhesion are described. The book then goes on to examine specific applications of fabrics in rubber, including conveyor belting, hose, power transmission belting and coated fabrics in structural applications. There are also short sections on applications such as hovercraft skirts, air brake chamber diaphragms and snowmobile tracks. This is a highly detailed, illustrated introduction to the interface between textiles and rubber technology.
