Chafer Fabrics are specialty fabrics primarily made of RFL dipped Nylon 6 or Nylon 66.
They are used in the manufacturing of tyres to protect the side walls of the tyre from the chaffing effect caused by the bead wires and the tyre rim.
We can produce both wicking and non-wicking, multi and mono filament chafer fabrics with yarns of 420, 840 and 1260 deniers. Our fabric weight ranges from 85 GSM to 400 GSM and fabric width ranges from 100 cms to 160 cms, depending upon the customer’s requirement.
The chafer fabric can be produced with both a fringe selvage or a cut and heat sealed selvage as required. Our proprietary Resorcinol Formaldehyde Latex (RFL) dip ensures an ensures excellent adhesion with the rubber substrate.
