Silicone Coated Belts
Silicone is one of the most common materials used in food handling. Belts coated with silicone provide:
- Excellent release properties
- High temperature resistance
- Hydrolysis resistance
- High chemical resistance
The use of a silicone coating must always respect the mechanical limits of this elastomeric material, which is suspect to scratch and wear, and can thus lose its properties in rough applications.
Habasit offers two ranges of silicone coated belts to meet different application requirements.
General purpose silicone belts
Liquid-coated silicone offers 40 Shore A hardness, a super-adhesive surface, but limited abrasion resistance and durability.
Wear-resistant silicone belts
Rotocured silicone rubber offers top surface quality. Its 60 Shore A hardness means it is very hard-wearing and durable. Temperature resistance is up to 180 °C.
