Certain systems require this type of conveyor belt when transversal rigidity of the belt is needed, for example belts with crimped edges and cleats. The rigidity of the belts helps support the belt on the return side of the system. This characteristic is achieved by using special monofilament fabrics and increasing the thickness of the rubber used between fabric layers.
The belts are constructed using one or two EP Polyester-Nylon sheets or metallic meshes, if required, with the inclusion of special fabrics to achieve greater rigidity (for example textile monofilaments or steel cords).
They are manufactured with standard characteristics, though the customer may request other additional characteristics such as flame-resistance, resistance to oils, white coloured belts, etc.
The edges of the belts may be cut or molded.
