METAL VS PLASTIC BELTS
Are you considering the use of plastic belts on their spirals, either to replace metal belts on existing units or designing new spirals with plastic.
With new plastic materials, solid engineering and application support and very strong belt warranties, you should take a look at the use of plastic spiral belts on your next application.
If you have an application coming up for a spiral, let us take a look at it and we will give you a specific analysis of the belts you are considering for a specific product and environment. We can help you choose the best belt for the application.
The use of metal belts on spirals are well documented for their abilities and limitations.
Plastic spiral belts have not as much history, although in straight running applications plastic belts have proven to outwear metal by a 3:1 factor. Time will tell if this also applies to spiral radius belts.
