Pulley Lagging Options and Knurling

Lagging is the use of an elastomer compound on the face or contact surface of a pulley to increase the friction between the pulley and the belt.  Increasing this friction reduces belt slipping and the belt tension required to drive the conveyor.  This equates to longer belt and component life and increases reliability.

Lagging can also greatly reduce wear caused by abrasive materials and prevent buildup of sticky material on pulley surfaces.

We offer a variety of lagging compounds for a broad range of applications.  These include SBR, white neoprene, urethane, carboxylated nitrile (XNBR), nitrile, EPDM and silicone.

For those applications that require additional grip from a stainless steel pulley, we offer complete knurling services.  Options include straight groove, herringbone, and diamond as well as custom designs.
