Belt Splicing & Splicing Kits
Our ongoing recruitment and training program ensures that our conveyor belt splicing teams are the best in the business. At Technobalt we offer both on-site and endless splicing services using our facilities. Our technicians are proficient in the splicing of all types of conveyor belts – plied rubber, solid woven PVC, and steel cord. With this kind of flexibility, you can be sure that we will provide your company with an unrivalled level of service.
The weakest point of any rubber conveyor belt is the splice joint. If the splice joint is not sufficiently strong and durable then failure can be catastrophic. To get the best operational results it is essential that the splicing material rubber has very similar physical properties and characteristics compared to the rubber used to make the belt itself including the outer cover rubber and the skim (inter-ply) rubber. This is because each rubber-based component has very specific properties applicable to its function. The splicing materials must also be a compatible match to bond with each other. This is vital in order to ensure that the most efficient bond possible with good adhesions on both carcass and the transition to the base belt is created. These objectives are usually best achieved by using splicing materials supplied by the original manufacturer of the belt.
In order to help our customers achieve the strongest, most reliable splice joints, we supply a wide range of high performance splicing materials and splicing kits. A virtually unique feature of the Dunlop range is that it has been developed by the same engineers and technicians who developed the conveyor belts they are designed to be used on. This means that Dunlop splicing materials and kits are as close to the perfect match that it is possible to achieve. The result is optimum performance in terms of adhesion, dynamic life and efficient application.
PVC and PU Conveyor belts
Polyurethane (PU) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) conveyor belts are commonly used for the transport of relatively lightweight, non-aggressive materials. These types of conveyor belts can be ordered specifically according to the material being conveyed, by different thickness, number of layers and many other factors. PVC and PU conveyor belts have the advantage of not creating unsightly marks on the material being carried. We hold good levels of stock of PVC and PU belting in our operational centres in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. As with rubber belting, we also provide a splicing services, both in our own workshops and on site.
Most commonly used materials:
Good wear resistance, most commonly used, economically priced. Available with different hardness covers.
Very good wear resistance, used on fast running and high abrasion positions.
Very good chemical resistance, used in color chambers.
