Thermoplastic Polyester (TPE)

TPE – Thermoplastic Polyester The TPE or Thermoplastic Polyester Elastomer that esbelt uses to manufacture its POLER series belts is based on an ester-eter copolymer which combines many of the characteristics of elastomers (sythetic rubber) and those of flexible plastics (PVC, polyurethane, polyolefin). This material is made up of only carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, thus complying with…

Polyolefin for producing Conveyor Belts

Polyolefin The generic term of polyolefin includes all the plastic materials synthesized from aliphatic hydrocarbons of short chain (olefins), which join, one behind the other, and form a long chain with high molecular weight. In the same group of polyolefins one also includes the polyethylene, the polypropylene and some other polymers with minor commercial importance.…

PVC

PVC for manufacturing conveyor belts PVC or Polyvinyl Chloride is the product of the polymerization of the vinyl chloride monomer. It is one of the most common plastics used by man because of its wide versatility, although it is one of the most difficult to formulate and process since it requires the use of several…

Silicone for producing Conveyor Belts

Silicone Silicone is an inorganic polymer derived from polysiloxane.  It is odourless and colourless.   Among the principal characteristics, it is worthwhile to highlight the following: Resistant to high temperatures. Good release properties. Resistant to humidity. ­Good resistance to fire. High resistance to deformation due to compression. Good resistance to UV rays.   esbelt’s silicone belts:…

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU)

Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) Polyurethane is a polymer composed of organic units joined by urethane links. Among the different varieties of polyurethane, Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) has a structure which provides properties that other types of polymers do not possess and are very useful for high performance applications. These key properties include: High resistance to wear and abrasion. Very flexible…
