Combitex belts can be manufactured from most permutations of bonded backing materials to give multi-layered belts with the desired resilience/ abrasion resistance/coefficient of friction properties. Combitex belts are used where the designer needs a combination of backing properties, not available from a single backing material.
A typical example would be high compressibility combined with a high coefficient of friction. UraCell-LD is highly compressible but does not have a particularly high coefficient of friction and NKR is not particularly compressible but does have a high coefficient of friction. The solution to this problem is to combine two backing materials with the appropriate characteristics to give the required properties.
Some of the above combinations may require cross slitting or knife cutting for flexibility (please consult our Technical Department).
