The steel cords with transverse polyamide or high elastic steel cords are bonded with adhesive rubber and cover plates to create a unit that it completely stable.
High impact resistance is provided by the rubber-steel laminate as the steel cords are embedded within the rubber and help to absorb impact energy in longitudinal and transverse directions.
The elastic steel cords are thin and used as reinforcement in a longitudinal direction, allowing low transition lengths, small pulley diameters and short take up lengths.
