Are Dunlop Steelcord belts kept in stock, or are they only available to order?

Because of the huge variety of different specifications, all Dunlop steelcord belts are custom-made to order in our factory in Drachten in The Netherlands. They can be supplied in abrasion, cut, rip & tear cover grades as well as oil-resistant and fire-resistant in widths from 500mm to 1600mm.

Can Steelcord belts be supplied with breakers?

Yes. There are two categories of breaker – ‘fabric breakers’ and steel breakers and Dunlop steelcord belts can be supplied in any type. The stronger, heavier-weight, nylon fabric breakers and steel breakers can actually stop a belt so they are often referred to as ‘rip stop’ breakers.

Why are Dunlop Steelcord belts more expensive than most of your competitors?

The main reason is the superior quality of the raw materials that we use. Raw materials make up more than 70% of the cost of making a steelcord belt. We make all of our rubber ourselves and is engineered to provide far superior resistance to abrasion, cutting and gouging, ozone and ultra violet light. We also only use the very highest grade steel cords. For these reasons, Dunlop steelcord belts provide a much longer operational lifetime and therefore the lowest lifetime cost.
