ELATECH belt with backings
The unique chemical and mechanical characteristics of ELATECH®
belts together with the possibility of a wide variety of backings in different materials make ELATECH®
belts ideal for all conveying applications where synchronization is required. The engineer designer has unlimited possibilities to make unique designs.
Polyamide fabric backings
The special polyamide fabric backings allow a reduction of the friction coefficient and when applied on teeth, decrease noise in high speed drives. They are very useful in applications with sliding surfaces or product accumulation.
PAZ: Polyamide backing on tooth side
Reduces coefficient of friction and allows a smother tooth engagement.
PAR: Polyamide backing on back side
Reduces coefficient of friction.
PAZ-PAR: Polyamide backing on both tooth and back side
Coefficent of friction
- Polyurethane on steel µ = 0,7
- Polyammide on steel µ = 0,35
Polyurethane film backing (foil)
Among all synthetic materials and rubber compounds, polyurethane is the material which offers the best resistance to abrasion. Polyurethane films of different thickness and different shore hardness, applied on ELATECH® belts, are an ideal solution in many applications in the wood processing, ceramic and glass industry. On request it is possible to supply polyurethane backings FDA approved.
Polyurethane foam backings
Polyurethane foams are easily compressible according to the cellular structure of the material. Due to this main characteristic, common applications are: labelling equipment, light and/or fragile materials conveying, glass and paper industry, vacuum conveyors.
PVC has a high coefficient of friction and a good resistance to acids. Due to its versatility, it is used in many applications in the paper, glass, ceramic industry, labelling and packing equipment. FDA quality allows the application in food industry processes.
Many different rubber backings in both synthetic and natural rubber are available. Due to rubber high friction coefficient and high temperature resistance, ELATECH®
polyurethane belt with rubber backing are used in many different conveying application: paper industry, ceramic industry, wood processing industry, glass industry, labelling and packaging machines.
Many types of backing are available. Pleae consult with our technical department.
