Fabric Grades
Premium: These fabrics have a heavy coating of PTFE to provide the easiest release and highest chemical resistance and electrical strength. Preferred for applications where fabric weave impression is undesirable and where sticky materials are being conveyed.

Standard: Offering a smooth surface and excellent anti-stick properties, this grade is the most widely used TFE Glass™ belt.

Mechanical & Economy: Light PTFE coating offers economy in applications where increased surface texture is useful.

Crease & Tear Resistant: This grade offers substantially higher tear strength for high speed applications.

Anti-Static/Conductive: Specially treated fabric reduces static build-up.

Porous: PTFE coated porous belting materials are used in conveying applications where maximum airflow and strength are critical to drying, curing and bonding inks, pigments and powders to fabrics and non-woven materials.

SRC-Glass™: Silicone rubber coated fiberglass belts offer excellent release properties up to 500ºF, superior abrasion, flex and chemical resistance and outstanding dielectric properties in demanding environments. Silicone belts are ideal in applications where high flexibility and a high slip coefficient are required.

Fabric Thickness
For most conveying applications, 0.010 – 0.014″ belts are preferred.

Lighter, thinner belts (0.003 – 0.006″) are employed in heat sealing applications that require superior flexibility and heat transfer properties, particularly in 2-ply applications.

Heavier, thicker belts (0.015 – 0.042″) are used in high strength/load carrying applications.

Terpco offers metallic, non-metallic, endless and open splices to accommodate your unique requirements.

Metallic Splices: Alligator and clipper splices are the most durable and easy to use. Belts can be installed without taking machinery apart and a cover-flap can be added to these splices to reduce mark-off and heat transfer to your material.

Non-Metallic Splices: When metal lacing cannot be used, a fabric notched splice, peek lacing, self loop or smart loop splice offers durability and flexibility. A smart loop splice or peek lacing is recommended when maximum airflow is needed.

Endless Splices
Scarfed Splice: Belt ends are tapered to minimize thickness at the splice area, overlapped and heat sealed.

Overlap Splice: Material ends are cut straight or diagonally, overlapped and heat sealed providing a very durable seam.

Butt Splice: Material ends are butted together and reinforced with a durable backing strip providing a smooth working surface.
