Substrates for rubber and thermoplastic belting

Conveyor Belting Fabrics

Milliken manufactures reinforcing fabrics for two major classes of conveyor belting: multi-ply rubber belts and lightweight rubber or thermoplastic belts.

End uses for multi-ply rubber belts include mining, lumber processing, and agricultural equipment.  Fabrics for multi-ply rubber belting utilize a variety of yarn types and a range of fabric constructions designed for specific applications.  Each fabric is treated under carefully controlled conditions of stretch, temperature, and chemistry to ensure controlled elongation, strength, and adhesion in the finished belt.

Lightweight conveyor belting is used in package handling, food processing, fitness equipment, and other light duty or high-speed applications.  Milliken specializes in “cross-rigid” constructions that use yarns selected to impart lateral stiffness across the fabric, helping the finished belts track true and avoid creasing or folding.  These fabrics may be supplied in loom state, heatset, or finished with adhesion-promotion chemistry.
