Steel belts in the rubber and plastics industry

Manufacturing processes producing rubber and plastic sheet products involving, for instance, rotocure presses have to rely on steel belts with exceptional properties. Since the belts are under extreme exposure they need to feature a design that ensures maximum strength and tolerance as well as a long lifetime.

After years of research and experience in manufacturing steel belts, Berndorf Band has found the perfect material in NICRO 52.6 and discovered the special properties the weld seam of the belt must possess. Also, they found that NICRO 12.1 and NICRO 31 are ideal for cooling belts in the tire industry as well as for salt baths for the pretreatment of rubber products.

Multiple benefits for the rubber and plastics industry

  • Unrivaled surface quality
  • Industry-specific weld seam options
  • Excellent flatness of the weld seam and the belt
  • Exceptional operating characteristics
  • Exceptional belt life
