Hughes Industrial Sales offers porous PTFE belts that are used to apply synthetic rubber backing to carpeting. Our PTFE-coated fiberglass conveyor belts convey the uncured synthetic rubber backing through the manufacturing process. The woven fiber (carpet) overlay is bonded to the uncured synthetic rubber as the PTFE coated fiberglass belt conveys it through a curing oven. The PTFE belt’s non-stick properties allow for an excellent release of the cured and bonded rubber.
Our porous PTFE belts are designed to imprint the pattern of the belt’s finish on the rubber backing. PTFE coated fiberglass products can be supplied in roll form slit to custom widths, or as a finished fabricated belt. They are also available in a smooth non-porous finish.
