Ovens used during the rubber extrusion and curing process use either Silicone or PTFE rubber extrusion belts to take the rubber from the extrusion head straight through the curing oven.
Our special high-heat high-release PTFE belts can be made endless by using a joint, which is frequently protected by a secure belt flap. This helps avoid any semi-melted rubber from sticking to the fastener and causing issues. This also prevents the lacing from making impressions on the finished product.
Rubber Extrusion Belt
Hughes Industrial Sales can supplement the Silicone and PTFE belt joints with a standard overlap. While doing this, a small lip is formed, and we cover this for added protection. Hughes Industrial Sales can seal the edge of the belt where the joint is to give it added strength that can potentially delaminate because of the oven’s high temperatures. This is the most frequent reason for failure on Silicone and PTFE rubber extrusion belting.
