Open Mesh (Dryer) Belts

PTFE Coated Conveyor Belts are used in a variety of applications where materials are handled in a high heat environment -- from screen print dryers used in the textile industry to extruded rubber products used in the automobile industry. Belts are designed for top performance and durablilty in high-heat environments. 

Open mesh PTFE impregnated fiberglass belting is available in brown or with a black U.V. block coating for ultra violet drying. Widths are available up to 197" wide. The fluorocarbon resins used in the curing process are chemically inert, and the woven glass substrate provides exceptional strength and dimensional stability. Its non-stick surface, operating temperature range from -100°F to +550°F and the 70% open area makes this belting the perfect solution for many drying applications.

To enhance the tracking and belt life, GBI offers various styles of edging: 

  •  Heat-sealed and sewn, PTFE-coated fabric reinforcement 
  • Sewn only 
  • Heat-sealed TFE film edging 
  • Silicone edging (made to order)
