Title:
STEEL CORD, COMPOSITE OF RUBBER AND STEEL CORD, AND TIRE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2008/032538
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided are a steel cord particularly useful for reinforcement of a tire crown section, having no problem of production as seen in conventional products, and capable of being efficiently produced with stable quality, and a rubber/steel cord composite and tire using the steel cord. The steel cord has a double-twisted structure in which N number (N = 2 to 8) of strands (2) each formed by twisting multiple element wires and having a substantially elliptic cross-section. The steel cord satisfies the expression of d1/d2 > 1.08, with d1 the length of the major axis of a strand (2), d2 the length of the minor axis. The steel cord also satisfies ξc > 0.005, where ξc is expressed by the expression of ξc = √(-b/2 + √(b2/4 - c)) - 1, where b is -1 + π2(-4R2 + d2)/P2, c is π2d2k(4π2R2 + P2)/P4, R is (D-d)/2, k is tan2(π/2 - π/N), and d is (d1 + d2)/2, with D the diameter in mm of the circumcircle of the cord, P the twisting pitch in mm of the cord.
