Conveying materials that contain oil, fat, grease or chemicals can have a very detrimental effect on the performance and life expectancy of a conveyor belt because they penetrate into the rubber causing it to swell and distort.


In environments where coal dust, biomass, fertilizer or other combustible elements are involved it is essential that the conveyor belt cannot create static electricity that could ignite the atmosphere.


Rubber that is designed to resist heat, fire or oil invariably has a lower resistance to
abrasion (wear).


Safety first! Having played an instrumental role in the creation of fire-resistant conveyor belting, we take great pride in making sure that our fire-resistant belts really are the safest conveyor belts in the world.


Of all the demands placed on conveyor belts, heat is usually the most unforgiving and damaging. High-temperature environments accelerate the ageing process, which causes the rubber to harden and crack.


At ground level, ozone is a pollutant. Ozone increases the acidity of carbon black surfaces and causes reactions to take place within the molecular structure of the rubber. This results in surface cracking and a decrease in tensile strength. The same consequences apply to exposure to ultraviolet light and is referred to as ‘UV degradation’.
