The unique non-stick properties of PTFE-coated fabrics are superior to all other polymer-coated materials. The non-stick nature of a PTFE surface is the main reason for their use in a range of applications from heat sealing packaging machines to industrial food processing. PTFE belts have a very low coefficent of friction, have a capacity to lubricate and are easy to clean. These properties are best illustrated by the frequent use of cooking release sheets in the baking and food processing industries.

Some of the varied industries served for PTFE coated glass fabrics in either belting or slit tape form are as follows:

  • Abrasives
  • Automotive
  • Aviation

Open Mesh Belts

PTFE Coated Mesh Conveyor Belts are used in a variety of applications where materials are handled in a heat or UV environment - from screen print dryers used in the textile industry to extruded rubber products used in the auto mobile industry. Belts are designed for top performance in these environments.

Open mesh PTFE impregnated fibreglass belting is available in brown or with a black U.V. block coating for ultra violet drying. The woven glass substrate provides exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Its non-stick surface, operating temperature range from -73°C to +260°C and the 70% open area makes this belting the perfect solution for many drying applications.

To enhance the tracking and belt life we offer various styles of edging:

  • Heat-sealed and sewn, PTFE-coated fabric reinforcement
  • Sewn only
  • Heat-sealed TFE film edging
  • Silicone edging (made to order)

Applications

  • Screen print dryers / shrink tunnels
  • Drying textiles and non-woven materials
  • Side and base sealing auto pack machines
  • Re-soldering and ink drying cable braiding
  • Heat-setting synthetic yarns
  • Curing and cooling extruded rubber products, e.g. Automotive
