This paper presents the results of studies to achieve adequate steel cord adhesion whilst seeking to improve hysteresis characteristics and to reduce compound heat generation through the use of chemically activated aramid fibers called Sulfron 3001. This unique ingredient is capable of reducing the compound hysteresis significantly. This reduction of hysteresis translates into lower heat generation and consequently better adhesion to steel cord, especially under dynamic environments.
