  • Varieties in Urethane Belt Weights

    Urethane belting is a popular choice for conveyor belts because it is easy to clean, durable, resistant to abrasions, and has a high tension that does not require the addition of belting slack holders or any other additions. Urethane belts are also highly bacteria and contaminant resistant, making them ideal for using with delicate products, food production, and medical goods. There are actually several different varieties of urethane belting that are suited to different uses. Each type of belting has different properties for abrasion resistance, chemical resistance, durability, and weight...

  • Benefits of Urethane Belting

    Urethane belting for conveyor systems is a somewhat new material used on conveyor belts in place of traditional rubber belts or synthetic fabric and plastic belts often used in other industries. A urethane belt is made of pure, flexible urethane, or added over a fabric strip or some other material to create a flexible, yet structured belt that is impervious to stains and the possibility of materials leaking through or into the belt itself. These unique properties of urethane belting make them an ideal choice for the following reasons: Abrasive...

  • Urethane vs Rubber Belts

    Thin belts are used for a variety of products, from automotive motors to large industrial machines. The thin belts provide anchors and pulley systems for a variety of mechanical uses and processes, and the belts are vital to the proper functioning of these machines. In the past, only rubber belts were available for this use, because the polyurethane mixture used in today's urethane belting had yet to be invented. However, modern factories and business owners now get a choice between rubber and urethane belting models. In many ways, urethane provides...

Industry Information

Urethane Belting

Polyurethane belts (which are sometimes referred to as urethane belts) are made from the thermoplastic polyurethane. High-quality polyurethane belts have an average life-span of four to six years, but they can last much longer depending on usage and environmental conditions. Polyurethane belts can be used for a wide variety of applications including food conveyors, packaging equipment, dental drills, brake rollers, chemical mixers, computer printers, HVAC equipment and much more.

Polyurethane and urethane are two different substances; urethane is another word for ethyl carbamate, which is not a component of polyurethane and is chemically distinct from it. Despite this distinction, the words “urethane” and “polyurethane” are often used interchangeably. Polyurethane belts are used as power transmission belts and as conveyor belts in comparatively light-duty applications. Temperature has a definite effect on the resiliency of polyurethane belts. Polyurethane's physical resilience diminishes at higher temperatures. This means that a polyurethane belt's resiliency at 120°F (49°C) decreases to roughly 70% of its resiliency at room temperature, it and drops to about 10% at 150°F (66°C). Also, as temperature decreases, polyurethane becomes more brittle. When polyurethane belts are left overnight in low temperatures, they can take a set that can cause welds to shear apart.

Cleaning polyurethane belts with Oxine (Chlorine Dioxide) or isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) is acceptable without prolonged exposure or high concentrations, which can damage the polyurethane. Polyurethane belts may also be washed in lukewarm water with regular liquid dishwashing soap. Frequent washing is not recommended for more hygroscopic polyurethane belts as it can cause damage over time, especially with hot water temperatures. Polyurethane belts should not be sanitized with bleach because it causes them to crack and lose elasticity. Polyurethane belts can be formed into almost any required shape; this is one of the primary benefits of manufacturing polyurethane belts. Polyurethane is just one of many synthetic polymer materials that are used for the construction of belts. Natural rubber as well as synthetic rubber materials like neoprene and silicone are also widely used. Correctly pairing a polyurethane belt with its application will ensure the longevity of the belt and the effectiveness of the process in which it is involved.
