Rubber Compounds / Elastomers

EFT provides precision short-cut fiber to the Rubber Compound/Elastomer industry. The fibers are used to add strength while reducing weight of elastomers, and they can be added at light loading levels. Other benefits can include fire retardancy, coated bundles (pelletizing) for easier conveyance of material and controlled strand integrity , increase in hardness and stiffness, and corrosion resistance. We offer both natural and synthetic fibers including tire cord, rayon, polyester, nylon, carbon and aramid, among other fibers. Each material provides specific benefits to the application. We can help improve your design on a part by offering a fiber type and fiber size tailored specifically for the application.
