Special Materials for modular plastic conveyor belts
In order to solve tasks out of the ordinary, we are able to deliver a variety of special materials as well as additives.
High Temperature Areas
For cookers, steamers and air dryers etc. it will be an advantage to use a temperature stabilised polypropylene material that is not affected by a constant high temperature.
For blanchers and pasteurizers etc., where the belt’s thermal expansion may be an issue, we supply belts in COMPOSITE MATERIAL. This reduces the thermal expansion coefficient by approx. 75% from normal polypropylene. It furthermore has an excellent chemical resistance and will help dissipate static charges that might build up in certain applications.
For more general applications in high temperature areas, we recommend various nylon types with a range of up to +150°. This will give a great combination of pulling force and high impact strength.
In areas with distinct necessity for added pulling force, we can supply either fibre or mineral reinforced materials. These will significantly improve the pulling force, but at the same time lower the impact strength.
Most materials can be delivered either as electrically conductive or antistatic. The electrical conductivity can be varied to suit your requirements.
There is often a need for ”non-stick” effect particularly for free-zing applications, where it is necessary to avoid the products sticking to the belt surface. For this purpose we deliver
polyethylene in a non-stick version.
The material is highly relevant in food applications where there is a risk of contamination. The compound is designed to be detected by metal detectors and X-ray machines. Sensibility
degrees may vary with customer’s equipment. The material com- plies with FDA regulations for use in food processing and packaging.
Flame Retardant Materials
For use in fire hazardous areas, we can supply V-0 rated materials that will not sustain a flame or burn actively. The material is FDA approved for direct food contact.
