Title (EN) TIRE HAVING FLOATING REINFORCEMENT IN THE SHOULDER/SIDEWALL
(FR) PNEU COMPORTANT UNE ARMATURE FLOTTANTE DANS L'EPAULEMENT/FLANC
Abstract:
(EN) A radial ply tire (10) has a floating reinforcement ply on the inside shoulder/sidewall region of the tire. The reinforcement ply comprises ply rubber having a gauge sufficient to delocalize flexing in the tire shoulder/sidewall region, and in one embodiment may be reinforced with 0.50 to 6.0 phr fibers. Depending on the type of tire in which the reinforcement ply is used, the reinforcement has a total gauge of 0.005 inch to 0.175 inch. When fiber is used in the illustrated embodiment, the fiber is oriented circumferentially in the tire.
(FR) Un pneu à carcasse radiale (10) présente un pli d'armature flottant situé sur la région intérieure de son épaulement/flanc. Ce pli d'armature est constitué d'une gomme d'une épaisseur suffisante pour délocaliser la flexion dans la région de l'épaulement/flanc du pneu, et dans un mode de réalisation, peut être renforcé avec des fibres de 0,50 à 6,0 parties en poids pour cent parties en poids de gomme. Suivant le type de pneu dans lequel le pli d'armature est mis en oeuvre, l'armature présente une épaisseur totale de 0,005 pouces à 0,175 pouces. Lorsque des fibres sont utilisées dans le mode de réalisation illustré, elles sont orientées circonférentiellement dans le pneu.
