The rubber used in these belts can be non-staining and has been formulated by Dunlop rubber technicians to provide first-class resistance to oils and resins found in the enormously diverse range of trees now used within the timber
The carcass consists of at least two plies of wholly synthetic Polyester fabric (EE). The advantages of EE fabric are that it is impervious to moisture, has low elongation and has a high tensile strength.
Dunlop sawmill belting is made to order in widths up to 2000mm supplied as standard without covers or 1.5mm top and 0mm friction back for slider belt applications. Other thicknesses are available upon request. It is available in two different oil resistant cover grades, ROM (animal & vegetable oils) and ROS (extra resistant to mineral oils and high concentrations of vegetable oils and resins). Both Dunlop ROM and ROS oil resistant rubber also have excellent wear resistance, giving a much greater operational lifetime as well as being resistant to ozone and UV (EN ISO 1431).
