Habasit nonwoven belts have a unique construction: the strength member of the belts is in the center and is protected by needled, felt-like covers top and bottom. The carcass is saturated often with various PVC or Rubber blends, to provide the right features such as coefficient of friction, flexibility, chemical or abrasion resistance required by the applications. The design allows these belts to run with less noise than most traditional interwoven belts while offering additional benefits such as a frayless design amongst others.
