Bladder Fabrics for Improved Tire Machine Productivity

​​Milliken makes tire manufacturing faster, easier and less material-intensive. With our bladder fabrics, tire manufacturers can extend the life of their bladders to as much 35,000 cycles, resulting in less downtime for bladder change and the use of fewer bladders per year, saving both time and materials.

The Milliken Family of Bladder Fabrics
