With extreme transverse stability and high tensile strength, the enhancement of the GKD glass hybrid belt sets new standards while retaining the same excellent air permeability. Even at large belt widths of more than 5 meters, the conveyor belt reliably displays all of its advantages. Web bonding in wide double-belt ovens is now more efficient.
The new glass hybrid belt and its special mesh in detail: The combination of fiberglass and metal unites the advantages of both materials in one belt. Flexible, light fiberglass in the warp direction prevents the mesh from expanding with the heat. The dimensions of the conveyor belt remain stable across the entire temperature range. Metallic weft wires woven in the weft direction ensure the necessary transverse stability in applications with large weaving widths and where strong product shrinking forces are at play. Thanks to the innovative GKD anti-stick coating of the belt, it is also possible to process highly adhesive products – without soiling the belt mesh.
The improved glass hybrid belt offers ideal prerequisites for the efficient production of voluminous fiber felts, for which the magnetic double-belt design is suspended magnetically in a double-belt oven. The low weight of the belt per unit area combined with a large magnetic portion is a considerable advantage.
