Reinforced Veethane extruded V-belting is a thermoplastic extrusion, reinforced with a polyester cord. It combines strength with flexibility. It has a coefficient of friction greater than rubber and maintains its characteristics over a wide temperature range.
Because Reinforced Veethane is made from a pure Polymer, it has a nonporous surface which will not attract lint or dust, absorb fats or greases, or harbor bacteria. The user can cut Reinforced Veethane to length and heat seal it, even on enclosed drives, so inventory problems and downtime are reduced.
Types of Reinforced Veethane:
FDA/USDA Standard Reinforced Veethane is produced in a variety of configurations and is primarily used for conveying applications. It is highly flexible and heat resistant. Hi-Cap Reinforced Veethane, extruded from Polyester, is primarily for power transmission applications. It is virtually impervious to common industrial contaminants that can weaken or destroy rubber v-belts. It is accepted by the FDA/USDA for use in the food industry.
Reinforced Veethane has a high resistance to wear and can be used to convey abrasive material such as cinder blocks, grinding wheels and objects made of glass, metal or plastic. It is non-marking, so it is excellent for conveying paperboard packages and Pentagonal Reinforced Veethane is ideal for conveying glass or tile.
Power Transmission Applications:
Hi-Cap Reinforced Veethane can replace belts in many drive applications in easy to install matched sets.
