Nylon belts are belting made of solid extruded high grade nylon (polyamide) materials used for power transmission and conveying.
Nylon belting is popular in a number of industries, including: agriculture, industrial manufacturing, commercial sewing, food processing and retail and grocery. In those industries, it facilitates applications like: parts conveying, thresher machine power transmission, general manufacturing equipment power transmission, conveyor belt systems, check out lines and more.
Nylon belts have all the good qualities of nylon, including: high impact resistance, high tensile strength, good flexibility, high durability over long distances, lightness, excellent elasticity, stability and low maintenance. In general, they just live longer than belts made from other rubber materials. The high impact resistance of nylon belts makes them an excellent choice for heavy duty load applications. Also, while they are extremely durable, nylon belts are easy to cut splice, if you so choose. In fact, spliced nylon seams retain almost 100% of their original strength and load capacity. Most other materials become significantly weaker when spliced. Another advantage of nylon belts is the fact that manufacturers have no trouble bonding an outer material over a nylon core. This makes it that much easier for them to customize them for you.
Speaking of customization, manufacturers offer nylon belts in a wide range of thicknesses, widths, lengths and textures. They can also sell them to you with endless (non-spliced), spliced, flat or o-ring (round) conveyors configurations. When preparing your custom belting, they consider application specifications like: nature of your load (conveying or power transmission), the weight of your load, the length of your system, your standard requirements (FDA, food-grade, etc.) and more.
