  • Publication number: 20120205019
    Abstract: A pneumatic tire carcass having at least one ply of stabilizing fabric. The stabilizing fabric has a machine direction and a cross machine direction. A plurality of high tenacity reinforcing yarn elements are disposed in the cross-machine direction. A plurality of machine direction yarn elements of relatively lower tenacity than the reinforcing yarn elements are disposed in the machine direction. The stabilizing fabric has an adhesion layer on both sides of the stabilizing fabric and a patterned coating of a tackifing material overlaying a portion of at least one side of the stabilizing fabric. A segment of the stabilizing fabric is disposed within the carcass with the machine direction yarn elements being in substantial alignment with the direction of tire rotation and with the cross-machine direction oriented radially relative to the direction of tire rotation.

  • Patent number: 8083877
    Abstract: A pneumatic tire containing a tread, a carcass having at least one belt ply disposed below the tread, and a cap ply located between the carcass and the tread. The cap ply comprises at least one layer of an open construction leno weave tape having a pair of warp yarns in the longitudinal direction and a weft yarn in the weft direction. The pair of warp yarns comprises a first warp yarn and a second warp yarn, where the second warp yarn has a force of elongation of between about 1 and 40% the force of elongation of the first warp yarn, where the second warp yarn is in tension, and where the second warp yarn has an elongation at break of greater than 2%. The leno weave tape is disposed in a flat pattern around the circumference of the carcass in the area of the belt ply. A method of making a pneumatic tire is also disclosed.
