Urethane Belting 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 lifespan of four to six years, but they can last much longer depending on usage and environmental conditions. Polyurethane belts can be formed into almost any required shape; this is one of the primary benefits of manufacturing polyurethane belts.

Applications of Urethane Belts

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

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. Polyurethane is just one of many synthetic polymer materials 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.

Maintenance of Urethane Belts

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.

Factors to Consider When Purchasing Urethane Belts

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 and drops to about 10% at 150°F (66°C). Also, as the temperature decreases, polyurethane becomes more brittle.
