Coating Materials Ammeraal Beltech brand bars

The coatings used on Synthetic Belts are called polymers and can be made of various materials which have influence on the suitability of the belt in a certain application.

Polymers can be separated into two different groups: thermoplastic or thermoset.

Mainly used compounds for coatings are:

PVC | Polyurethane | Polyolefin | Polyester

PVC

Polyvinyl chloride, commonly abbreviated to PVC, is a widely produced plastic. PVC is a type of thermoplastic polymer that is flexible and durable, and therefore suitable for use on conveyor systems. 

Main PVC coating types:

  • Flexam
  • Nonex
PVC

    Polyurethane

    Polyurethane belts are mainly used in the Food Industry. Due to its structure, polyurethane belts do not give off damaging toxins or chemicals. Polyurethanes for process and conveyor belting can be either thermoplastic – TPU, or thermoset – PUR. Thermoplastic polyurethane coating material excels through its exceptional resistance to grease, oils and chemicals.

    Main polyurethane coating types:

    • Ropanyl (TPU)
    • Ropanol (PUR)
    • Ropan (PUR)

    Polyolefin & Polyester

    Polyolefins are the largest group of thermoplastics; they are polymers of simple olefins such as ethylene. Polyethylene is probably the polymer you see most in daily life; it is the most popular plastic in the world.

    Main polyethylene coating types are:

    • Peflex
    • Poliflex
    • Polikleen

    Polyester is a category of polymers that contain the ester functional group in their main chain. Our polyester coating type:

    • Amtel

    Main fabrics used:

    • Cotton (natural)
    • Flax (natural)
    • Polyamide (synthetic)
