PTFE & Silicone Coated Process Conveyor Belting

Inert Belting & Materials Limited is a market leader in the Design, Manufacture, Supply and Instillation of PTFE and Silicone coated process conveyor belting.  Our state of the art production facility located in the UK’s industrial heartland and has been designed to produce belts up to a maximum width of 5m

 

Design – Manufacture – Supply – Installation

Incorporating a wide range of fabrication techniques ranging from fuse-bonded Teflon stitching, to laser guided edge cutting, our experienced production team are committed to constantly developing their skills and techniques in order to provide bespoke solutions for the ever changing demands of our clients  – including such advancements as ‘zero thickness increase’ belt splices and ‘heat-resistant’ cushioning mats for the production of pattern-embossed, heat-tempered worktop savers.

Close Weave Belting

Our range of ‘close-weave’ belting ranges from 0.050mm – 0.9mm thick and 10mm – 5m wide, incorporating both PTFE and Silicone coatings.  With various thickness’s, coated weights and substrate types, including  UV resistant, Anti-Static and Kevlar-Reinforced Carcass.  We have products to meet the most demanding of application environments. Our  close-weave belting is supplied; either spliced, with a mechcanical fastener or prepared ready for on-site installation.  Positive tracking systems can be fitted to suit any specific requirement of a machine design.

Open Mesh Belting

Our range of Open-Mesh PTFE coated belting is graded from 1mm x 1mm, (window size) – 6mm x 6mm and up to 4.8m wide. With various thicknesses, coated weights and substrate types, including  UV resistant, Anti-Static and Kevlar-Reinforced Carcass.  We have products to meet the most demanding of application environments.  All mesh belts can be supplied with metalic clips, high-porosity mechanical fasteners,  fused endless or prepared for on-site instillation.  Our latest splice technology eliminates the use of Flouropolymer welding film, thus creating a splice with up to 100% porosity

 

Fabrication Technology

Since the first days of PTFE belt fabrication in the late 60’s the principles of belt making have remained almost unchanged.  The fabrication technology on the other hand has progressed and morphed beyond all recognition from those early days.  With the constant change of pace in industry and the ever more demanding tolerances imposed, the pressure to improve the performance and lifespan of the PTFE process conveyor belt has been intense.

At Inert belting & Materials we believe that working closely alongside our client base with both OEM’s and end-users alike, we are in a stronger position to constantly develop our fabrication technology, improving performance and belt life which in turn has positive effects on the running costs of any given process.  Investments in R&D, Training and Equipment have enabled us to become the leading force in PTFE belt fabrication.  Using the skill base of all our employees we are constantly improving our products and services beyond the expectations of our clients and the abilities of competitors.  This has lead to such developments as our range of porous mesh joints & splices, termed ‘Window Overlap, Window Butt Splice & Window Spiral & Window Loop Joint’.  By developing a method of thermally bonding PTFE coated composite material without the use of PFA & FEP welding films, we have developed splices with exceptional high air-flow rates.

 

Fabrication Details

For both ‘Open-Mesh’ and ‘Close-Weave’ belting styles there are a range of Joints, Splices, Edge Reinforcements and Tracking Systems to meet almost all applications requirements, customising a specific fabrication detail is a common place activity. We produce many different variants for each of the fabrication styles to meet the exacting requirements of a client’s process.  Please contact our Technical Sales Team who are on-hand to deal with any requests you may have.  Improving the performance and lifespan of your belt can be as simple as changing a small detail on the splice, the positive effects to your process could be immense.
