Global No.1 market share of polyester tire cord
Hyosung Advanced Materials has been in the tire reinforcements business since 1968 when we became the first Korean company to produce nylon tire cord. As well as polyester tire cord, we also began producing steel cord and bead wire over time and have grown into the global tire reinforcements industry’s largest company equipped with integrated production and supply systems for tire reinforcements, earning the trust of customers all around the world. Hyosung Advanced Materials is globally recognized for the quality and technological capabilities of our products. Our polyester tire cord in particular has been maintaining the largest share of its respective global market, and our products are being supplied to the world's leading tire manufacturers.
Tire cord is a reinforcing material that constitutes the inside of a tire and is a vital material that helps tires maintain their shape and makes driving more comfortable. In the polyester tire cord sector in particular, one out of two passenger cars in the world uses tire cord produced by Hyosung Advanced Materials, demonstrating our unrivaled position in the sector.
Steel cord is stronger than fiber and requires stringent process control in terms of adhesion to rubber, strength, fatigue resistance, etc. To produce lighter and more lasting tires, we are making various technological efforts, such as developing new structures and increasing tire strength.
Bead wire is a key reinforcing material for reinforcing radial tires and protects the carcass layer from being worn by the rim of the tire. Hyosung produces bead wire with various levels of strength.
