Plastic modular belts

Plastic belts are made up of plastic modules that are produced through high-pressure casting. These modules are connected using plastic or metal joints, resulting in a robust design that can withstand wear and tear. The plastic construction allows for easy cleanability, making these belts ideal for a range of applications. Plastic or metal gears are used to drive the belts, depending on the working environment. If you’re looking for a reliable and durable conveyor belt solution, consider plastic belts.

Various materials are used in the production of plastic belts, including:

  • PE (polyethylene): This is the most commonly used plastic due to its low cost and versatile properties. PE is tough, strong, stretchable, and chemically inert. It melts at a temperature of 100°C -140°C.
  • PP (polypropylene): The second most produced plastic in the world after polyethylene, but its share is growing the fastest. PP has a good price-quality ratio and is harder and stiffer than polyethylene. It can be used at higher temperatures, around 100°C, and is resistant to oil and grease.
  • PA (nylon/polyamide): This material is harder than PE and PP and has good mechanical properties, making it wear-resistant.
  • POM (polyacetal): A plastic with high wear resistance and temperature resistance. It is widely used in the food industry due to its excellent performance in harsh environments.

These materials offer unique properties that make them suitable for various applications in the production of plastic belts.

Plastic belts offer unique advantages over other types of belts, such as:

  • Corrosion resistance: Plastic belts are highly resistant to corrosion, making them ideal for use in harsh environments.
  • Abrasion resistance: These belts are also highly resistant to wear and tear, ensuring a long lifespan and low maintenance costs.
  • Compliance with FDA quality requirements: Plastic belts are suitable for use in food processing and other industries that require adherence to FDA quality requirements.
  • Low friction: Plastic belts have low friction, resulting in smoother and more efficient operation, which translates to reduced energy costs and improved performance.
