The Application of Textiles in Rubber by D. B. Wootton

By D. B. Wootton

This publication begins by way of describing the heritage of using textiles in rubber composites and progresses in the course of the expertise of yarn construction to the main points of material building. The 5 center cloth fabrics utilized in rubber reinforcement are coated, i.e., cotton, rayon, polyester, nylon and aramid. Adhesion of materials to the rubber matrix is mentioned and checks for measuring adhesion are defined. within the moment 1/2 the ebook, particular purposes of materials in rubber are defined intimately together with conveyor belting, hose, energy transmission belting and covered materials in structural functions.

Example text

Heat: Polyester is quite resistant to dry heat and is not greatly affected by temperatures of up to 180 °C (except on prolonged exposure). The melting point of polyester is 250 °C. On burning, it tends to melt away from the flame and burns with a smoky flame. It gives a slightly sweetish odour on burning. 34 Chapter 2 34 31/7/01, 11:34 am Acids: Polyester is quite resistant to acids, but will disintegrate on heating in concentrated mineral acids. Alkalis: Generally, the resistance of polyester to alkali is good, but hydrolysis will occur slowly at ambient temperatures and more rapidly at elevated temperatures.

There are two main ways in which this is achieved. 1 Back Beaming In this case, a fraction of the total warp ends are wound onto an intermediate or ‘back’ beam (generally 10 back beams or less per warp). When the required number of back beams have been prepared, these are then mounted behind the warping machine and the total number of ends rewound onto the weavers beam. 6(a). 6 Sectional warping techniques 55 The Application of Textiles in Rubber The creel and preparation of the back beams is basically the same as for direct warping, although the beams themselves would probably have a smaller overall width and a different bearing spindle for mounting the beams, for unwinding.

Water: Polyester is not significantly affected by immersion in water, losing perhaps a few per cent in tenacity when wet, but returning to its original properties on drying. 5%. Boiling water will cause polyester to shrink and can also cause some slight permanent loss of strength, due to hydrolysis. This tendency to hydrolyse is far more pronounced in the presence of steam and is greatly accelerated by the presence of small amounts of amines, especially cyclohexylamine, which is often used as a boiler water treatment, and can frequently be found in high pressure steam.
