How to clean belts?

We recommend that you keep your belts' adhesive qualities intact by cleaning and conditioning belts when necessary. A clean belt will properly offer the friction qualities it should.

Cleaning Agents

  • Soap and water: For all belt types; Nylon belts should be dried after washing
  • Alcohol: Spot cleaning on all belts
  • Alkalis (low concentration): Not for use on EPDM rubber
  • Ammonia: Not for use on NBR, EPDM or Silicone
  • Borax: Good for all belting
  • Chlorine: Do not use
  • Kerosene: Not for use on PVC or EPDM covers
  • Live Steam: Not for use on Nylon belts
  • Household cleaners: Many are useful, check formulation and perform a spot test
  • Quaternary Ammonia: Useful for cleaning/sanitizing food conveyor belts

Please note: Combinations of agents may cause unpredictable damage.
