Product Description

Balata conveyor belting stands as a durable and resilient belt, featuring a rubber friction surface on both of its sides. Crafted from top-notch high tensile cotton and natural rubber, this type of conveyor belting is particularly suitable for conveyors equipped with full roller beds, or steel beds adorned with occasional rollers. However, it’s important to note that this belting should not be employed in situations involving direct contact with food items or where it might come into excessive contact with oils.

Important Information

The belting comes with squared or cut edges. The usual procedure involves treating the cut roll edges using a heat gun, followed by the application of a fast-drying red paint that is lead-based. In case there’s no need for this paint for any specific reason, this should be clearly mentioned during the enquiry phase. It’s worth noting that excluding the painted edges, primarily applied for cosmetic purposes, won’t impact the performance of the belting. However, it’s important to acknowledge that the paint does serve as a moisture barrier.
