German term or phrase: *Stahlcord*draht (im Reifen)
Die Reibkorrosion (Vredding) ensteht im Bereich der Berührungsradien durch die Relativbewegung der einzelnen *Stahlcorddrähte* unter Pressung.

..., letztendlich sind Ablösungen im *Stahlcord*-Gummibereich mit Laufflächenablösungen die Folge.

I have pictures, but even with the pictures I cannot figure out what this exactly is. Looks like the belt or carcass, but could also be a ply. Looking for the correct technical term.

Thanks a lot for any engineering support!!

agree  milinad: steel corded wire or steel corded cable sounds better

  -> cord is a formal term. Cord can be made of wire, synthetic thread, etc. The term means that cord is made of steel wire.

agree  JM Simon (X): "steel wire cord" sounds right, too :)

agree  Frosty: Yup, steel wire, as in swr = steel wire rope. The basic difference between cord and rope is, as far as I know, the thickness.
