During the manufacture of carpeting and floor mats, carpet curing belts are used during the cooling of the carpet when the fibers and base are cooling. The carpet base material is a rubbery material and tends to stick to the carpet curing belt unless there is a high release coating on the belt. Frequently we use PTFE as the high release coating on these belts.
The carpet curing belts offered through Hughes Industrial Sales are heavy duty, with different options for different textures different belts leave specific imprints on the cured rubber. The belts are textured and coated with PTFE to ensure the rubber does not stick.
