Teflon®/Glass Belting

Our PTFE-coated Fluorofab® fabric is used to fabricate conveyor belts of up to 197″ in any length. More than 70 different weights and widths of Fluorofab® belting are available and serve many uses – typically where a superior non-stick surface is essential and when the operating temperature range is from -100°F to +550°F. The non-toxic, tasteless and odorless qualities of the PTFE coating make it appropriate for use in food handling operations, as well as, other applications such as:

  • Conveyorized screen print dryers
  • Tortilla presses
  • Rubber profile extrusion
  • Garment fusing and laminating presses

Open Mesh Teflon® Belting

Open mesh Teflon® PTFE impregnated fiberglass belting is available in brown or with a black U.V. block coating in widths up to 197″ and any length. The fluorocarbon resins used in the curing process are chemically inert, and the woven glass substrate provides exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Its non-stick surface, operating temperature range from -100°F to +550°F and the 70% open area makes this belting the perfect solution for many drying applications such as:

  • Conveyorized screen print dryers
  • Conveyorized belts for drying textiles
  • Conveyorized belts for side and base sealing auto pack machines
  • Conveyorized belts for resoldering and ink drying cable braiding

Silicone/Glass Belting

Fabricated out of our Silicone/Glass fabric this belting is available in white or red, coated one or both sides, in widths up to 36″ and any length. It provides excellent release properties, high dielectric strength, wear and flexing resistance and high chemical resistance. The operating temperature range is from -100°F to +500°F. The non-toxic, tasteless and odorless qualities of the coating make it appropriate for use in food handling operations, as well as, other applications such as:

  • Conveyorized shrink tunnels
  • Conveyor quick freeze chambers
  • Mid-temperature process conveyors

Kevlar® Belting

Woven and non-woven needled high temperature belts are designed for use in hot end processing in glass, aluminum, plastics, automotive, wood laminating and light metal casting.

KEVLAR 1 & 2 PLY
Woven single ply webbings are designed for use by fluorescent tube and flat glass manufacturers as rail guard and roll wrap. Two ply Kevlar is suggested for line catcher belt pads and extrusion table pads.

K-7
Woven single ply webbings are designed for use by fluorescent tube and flat glass manufacturers as rail guard and roll wrap. Two ply Kevlar is suggested for line catcher belt pads and extrusion table pads.

K-11
Smooth weave, suitable for lightweight hot-end process. May be used for breakaway lines in windshield manufacturing. Belts are cleated for use on flare machines. Treated belt may be used for scoop liners.

K-24/K-26
4 ply woven Kevlar designs offer good cut and heat resistance. Used in bulb manufacturing, light casting conveying, annealing units for blow molded plastics and aluminum extrusion. K26 has pan fibers which improve heat dissipation to extend wear and resistance to open flame.

TFE-GLASS & SRC-GLASS BELTS

MIPR Corp belts are available with a variety of mechanical or endless splices.  Some products are available up to 181″ wide.  Applications include:

  • Packaging
  • Rubber Processing
  • Food processing
  • Fusing and laminating plastic films
  • Curing and drying screen printing inks

Premium Grade – In applications where fabric weave impression is undesirable, or where sticky and gummy materials are being conveyed, premium grade TFE-Glass Fabric provides optimum results.

Standard Grade – Most belts are constructed of standard grade TFE-Glass Fabric, due to its combination of high performance and moderate price.

Mechanical Grade & Economy Grade – Preferred in situations where economy is more important than maximum resistance to chemicals and solvents.

Crease & Tear Resistant – Preferred in high-speed applications where high flexibility is required.

SRC-Glass – Preferred when high flexibility and a high slip coefficient are required.

Designed for a wide range of applications, TFE-Glass Fabric is available in four grades to match specific performance requirements.  TFE-Glass exhibits the following high-performance characteristics:

  • Non-stick surface
  • Temperature resistance from -100°F – +500°F (-73°C – +260°C)
  • Chemically inert
  • High tensile strength

Premium-Grade TFE-Glass Fabric – Featuring an extra heavy coating of PTFE, Premium-Grade Fabric delivers a super-smooth surface perfect for advanced applications, including:

  • Release sheets for cooking and baking applications
  • Laminate separator sheets
  • Specialized heat sealing
  • Demanding, non-stick applications

Standard-Grade TFE-Glass Fabric – With a smooth surface and superb non-stick properties, Standard-Grade Fabric serves the widest range of applications, including:

  • Release sheets on heat-sealing machines and laminate presses
  • Non-stick surfaces for paints, adhesives and food products
  • Gaskets, seals and bearings for chemicals, oils and gases
  • Thermal insulation for high-temperature and chemical-resistant applications
  • Covers for hot plates platens, chutes, hoppers, troughs and rolls

Mechanical-Grad TFE-Glass Fabric – Designed to deliver resistance to high temperatures and chemicals, Mechanical-Grade Fabric utilizes a medium coating of PTFE.  Typical applications include chemical-resistant laboratory aprons and protective curtains, such as:

  • Bottle washers and paint spraying curtains
  • Food packaging
  • Acid protection

Economy-Grade TFE-Glass Fabric – Providing a light coat of PTFE, Economy-Grade Fabrics are designed for large volume applications which require cost-efficiency, yet still need high performance.  Typical uses include:

  • Leaders for processing paper plastics, metallic foils and cloth
  • Separator sheets for processing uncured rubber
  • The manufacture of abrasive wheels

Crease & Tear Resistant TFE-Glass Fabric – Provides an unusually flexible material for use in applications where high tear-strength and good flex-life are demanded.

Fabric Thickness – For most conveying applications, 0.010″ – 0.014″ belts are preferred.  Lighter and thinner (0.003″ – 0.006″) belts are widely employed in heat sealing applications requiring superior flexibility and heat transfer properties, particularly in 2-ply applications.  Heavier and thicker (0.015″ – 0.042″) belts are used in applications requiring high strength and load carrying capabilities.

Splice Information – MIPR Corp belting can be ordered with a variety of splices.  Metallic, non-metallic, endless and open splices are all available depending on your requirements.  MIPR Corp can help you determine which splice will suit your application best.

Metallic Splices – Durable & flexible.  Belts utilizing these splices can be installed without taking machinery apart. A cover flap can be added to a mechanical splice to reduce mark-off and heat transfer to your material.  Available in alligator and clipper splice.

Non-Metallic Spices

  • Fabric notched Splice:  Highly flexible and easy to install.  Ideal when metal lacing can not be used.
  • Smartloop Splice:  Durable Kevlar®  loops are sewn & sealed to mesh belt – airflow at splice area is less restricted
  • Peek Splice:  High temperature, plastic spiral lacing is easy to install and allows for airflow throughout the splice area

Endless Splices

  • Butt Splice:  Ends are butted together and reinforced with a durable backing strip providing a smooth working surface.
  • Overlap Splice:  Ends are cut straight or diagonally, overlapped and heat-sealed providing a very durable seam
  • Scarfed Splice:  Ends of belt are tapered first to minimize the thickness at the splice area, then overlapped and heat-sealed
  • Splices are heat-sealed at MIPR Corp facility or prepared for heat-sealing for installation at your facility

Heavy Weight Belting – MIPR Corp’s heavy weight belting is typically used for the manufacture of carpet tiles, carpet mats, vinyl flooring, anti-fatigue mats, rubber extrusions and transporting of heavy weight materials through heated oven chambers.

Operating Recommendations

  • Maximum continuous temperature: 500°F
  • Maximum intermittent temperature: 600°F
  • Minimum drive pulley diameter: 8″
  • Minimum idler pulley diameter: 4″

Porous Belting – PTFE Coated Porous belting materials are used in conveying applications where maximum airflow and strength are critical to drying, curing and/or bonding inks, pigments and powders to fabrics and non-woven materials.

Operating Recommendations

  • Minimum drive pulley diameter: 6″
  • Minimum idler pulley diameter: 3″
