Combitex Backed Belts

Combitex Backed Belts

Combitex backings

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).

TransDev Coloured Polyurethane Belts

Over 500 different colours are available, complying with RAL, BS 4800, BS 381c and BS 2660.

All types of polyurethane belts are available, including profiled, covered and machined BRECOFLEX®, BRECO® M and V and SYNCHROFLEX®.

Coloured belts are ideal for product identification, advertising and corporate design. Although there will always be a minor variation between two different batches, the highest possible standards of colour accuracy and consistency can be achieved.

We offer 5 different colours from stock:
