Belts with sealed edges provide additional safety and protection, especially for hygiene purposes in food applications.  The sealed borders prevent oils and moistures from penetrating the fabric layer of the conveyor belts, thus avoiding microbial growth and ply separation. They also prevent fabric fiber from sticking out from the belt edges and contaminating the conveyed products.

In esbelt, we can seal the edges of PVC, PU and polyolefin belts ranging from 0.8mm to 9.6mm thick, from 1-ply to 4-ply and belts with smooth, matt or embossed top and bottom covers.

Our technique of sealing thin PU belts ensures that the belt edges are protected while maintaining its flexibility to work on knife edge applications.

As for thicker belts, the sealed edges are strongly sealed to resist tough working conditions.

Applications: include sugar, olives, grape harvesting, fruit canning, meat & poultry, fish & seafood and tobacco.

Belts with sealed edges is also available for our ASTER, BREDA and DRAGO series for industrial applications to protect belt borders from oils, greases and chemicals etc.
