In addition to vulcanization, our Belt Division provides belt repairs, lagging, lacing, belt cleaner installation, belt tracking and troubleshooting, and conveyor system surveys. Belt cover gauge wear analysis is also available for select customers, this helps identify budgetary needs for upcoming belt replacements.

  • Cleats: Many different cleat configurations can be added to our PVC belt. Standard T-cleats and beefy cleats range from half-inch up to 3-inch height and can be notched, tapered, or welded in individual segments. V-guide profile lugs are also available in several sizes.
  • V-Guides: We stock all of the common PVC and Urethane V-guide profiles in both solid and notched options. They can be welded to the pulley side as a single centered guide or in multiples. V-guide profiles can also be used as edge flanges when welded to the cover side.
  • Vulcanized Endless Splicing: Vulcanized Splicing functions as an alternative to mechanical fasteners. Varieties include: step splice, finger splice, double finger splice, finger overlap, skived splice or with ends prepared for field splice.
  • Perforation: Perforation available for bolts, vacuum or drainage.
  • Backing: Types of backing include natural rubber, neoprene, Linatex, Rema, closed cell foam or wetsuit and can be chemically bonded to flat belting, timing or V-belts. We can also groove or sipe for greater flexibility.
