No Compromises in Conveyor Belt Manufacturing

Conveyor Belt Manufacturing

Conveyor belts are flexible, durable bands used in various industries to convey and transport goods. Rubber is a commonly used material for manufacturing industrial conveyor belts due to its elastic properties, abrasion resistance, and versatility.

The manufacturing process of rubber conveyor belts is relatively straightforward: a raw rubber compound is rolled out into thin sheets in a calendering process, usually reinforced with textile or steel fabric, and finally vulcanized - to enhance physical properties such as strength, durability, hardness, elasticity, and resistance to environmental influences.

Release agents for conveyor belt manufacturers

The requirements for release agents for conveyor belts are similar to those for tires, especially when producing steel cord-reinforced conveyor belts. Conveyor belts, belt conveyors, or belt conveyors place similarly high demands as modern tires. Crucially, good compatibility with bonding agent systems during the rubberizing of adhesive compounds is also essential here. Conveyor belts, like tires, have partially very demanding compositions, depending on the place and purpose of use, such as in mining or heavy industry.

The release agents must reliably separate very adhesive compounds over a longer storage time and must not show any negative influences in further processing. Compounds such as chloroprene or EPDM are very demanding in terms of separation effectiveness.

Release agents for conveyor belts

Due to the high filler content of the compounds for conveyor belts and their strong adhesive properties to metallic molds, silicone-based, non-permanent products have proven effective. These mold release agents create a very good finish with excellent sliding, venting, and separating properties. These products can be sprayed on the hot mold surface as needed after opening the mold or directly applied to the belt. The latter option has the advantage of simultaneously providing a lubricant on the belt surface, which aids in pulling it through the press. Both the top and bottom of the belt can be coated in this manner. With this type of application, there is no longer a need for dry talcum powder after vulcanization. The belt will not stick together when wound up. The use of expensive silicone paper is eliminated in both application forms.
