Belting and Cleat Material

The following table shows the most commonly used and cost-effective belting we offer. These selections are comparably priced and suitable for most applications. However, we offer many specialty materials, for uses such as very high temperatures, wipedown, severe chemical exposure and ESD-rated belting for electronics and other static-sensitive environments. Consult with your representative for any questions regarding the most suitable belt material for your application.

U1, U2 and U4 belts will withstand product temperatures of up to 212°F in applications where product contact is transitory. Temperature values given above are based on continuous or prolonged product contact that elevates or decreases belt material temperature. Contact your representative for assistance with high-heat applications.

The following materials are our most popular and frequently ordered. Please contact your representative about the many other belting options available in both flat and cleated styles.

Low-Friction Belts
The U3, U4 and P1 are used primarily for product accumulation and product diverting for side-discharge.

U3 Style

  • Lowest coefficient of friction
  • FDA conformance
  • Urethane impregnated
  • General transport, good for fast product release

U4 Style

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • FDA conformance
  • General food handling
  • Plastics, molding & extruding

P1 Style

  • Low coefficient of friction
  • Minimal reflection for camera & laser inspection
  • Product accumulation
  • Inkjet & bar code printing
General Purpose Belt High-Friction Belt Sealed / Severe Duty Belt

U1 Style

  • Versatile belt which provides chemical, cut & abrasion resistance
  • FDA conformance
  • Medium-friction surface

P3 Style

  • Highest coefficient of friction
  • Handles clean & dry products up to 25° inclines and maintains product position in horizontal applications
  • Impact loading / cushioning

U2 Style

  • Top, bottom & edge sealed
  • Fish, poultry & meat processing
  • Metal working & stamping (oil saturated)
  • Medium-friction surface

Cleated Belts

Cleats (also called carriers) can be added to flat belting in order to separate or support products, especially in incline & decline applications. Cleats are available on all U-style belts except the U3. Standard cleat styles and sizes are shown below, which are those most commonly used. Cleat heights other than those listed here are also available upon customer request. Please contact your sales representative for non-standard cleat configurations.
