Dunlop Ultra X®
Key features of Dunlop Ultra X
We solved the problem of rapid wear caused by abrasion many years ago. Dunlop “Made in Holland” belts are well recognized as the longest lasting belts
Ultra X is a super-strength abrasion resistant ‘breaker weft construction’ single-ply belt that is exclusively made by Dunlop Conveyor Belting
Superior Splice Strength
Ultra X is best joined using the finger splice method. This creates the strongest and most reliable joint possible by retaining up to 90% strength
The world standard
Even the strongest, heaviest belts can be ripped, torn or punctured by heavy, sharp materials or foreign objects, either falling from a height or becoming trapped. Belts can often be destroyed within a matter of weeks or months. The Dunlop solution to this very old problem is a new and unique belt design – Dunlop Ultra X.
The Dunlop solution to this problem that of multi-ply belts of equivalent rating because of our unique straight-warp construction. UsFlex provides impact resistance up to three times greater than that of conventional plied belting. This unequaled toughness means the belt will not be easily damaged in the loading and conveying of large, sharp material. As a result, UsFlex will provide the longest belt life in the harshest conveying conditions, guaranteed!
Perfect for the following industries:
- Chemicals & Fertilizers
- Power generation
- Sugar & Food
ADVANTAGES COMPARED TO MULTI-PLY BELTING
- Far Superior Impact Resistance
- At Least 30% greater Splice Joint Strength
- Excellent Mechanical Fastener Retention
- Can Be Used on Smaller Than Usual Pulleys
- Low Elongation, Compared to ‘normal’ Plied Belting
- Short Take-up Travel Good Troughability
- Good Running Behaviour
Ultra X1 is designed as a stronger alternative to 250/2, 315/2 and 400/3 abrasion resistant multi-ply belts. Ultra X3 is designed as a stronger alternative to 500/3, 500/4, 630/3 and 630/4 abrasion resistant multi-ply belts.
In order to provide the most economical prices as possible, Ultra X is only available in full rolls of 300m or alternatively of 2 X 150m rolls if necessary.
The minimum order for each type is 600 square meters (300m X 2000mm) cut in any combination of
the following widths:
Ultra X1: 500mm , 650mm, 800mm, 1000mm, 1200mm or 2000mm.
Ultra X3: 500mm, 800mm, 1000mm, 1200mm and 2000mm.
Ultra X is a super strength abrasion resistant breaker weft construction single-ply belt that is exclusively made by Dunlop Conveyor Belting including the patented super-tough fabric, which is made in our in-house fabric weaving facility. Ultra X is designed to be a much stronger, more durable alternative to conventional multi-ply belting.
Ultra X is best joined using the finger splice method. This creates the strongest and most reliable joint possible by retaining up to 90% of tensile strength. This is because the step splice will always create a proportional ‘loss’ of tensile strength that is the equivalent of one ply.

Tear Resistance Testing
The tear resistance of Ultra X measured according to the international EN ISO 505 standard significantly exceeds that of conventional multiply belts. Tests for rip and tear resistance are only made on the actual belt carcass so the top and bottom covers are always removed. This ensures that the thickness and quality of the cover do not influence the accuracy and consistency of the tests.
Dunlop Ultra X
The most economic solution
- Longer wear life (up to 20% superior to DIN Y)
- Reduced frequency of belt replacements
- More robust carcass - fewer repairs
- Lower maintenance
- Finger splicing = fewer splice joint renewals
