Hanover January 21, 2021 – New Friction Top module with Shore A 86 hardness is tougher and therefore more durable.
Designed for high levels of power transmission and durability, Siegling’s Prolink series 8.1 is the right choice for numerous industrial applications and ideal for reliable and gentle transfer of heavy products. This plastic modular belt is now available as a further, enhanced Friction Top variant (FRT) whose surface is even more wear resistant but still has the good grip of previous FRT types.
These characteristics are achieved due to the rubber-like surface with its high friction coefficient and Shore A 86 hardness. The harder surface makes the belts last much longer, particularly when abrasive or sharp-edged products are conveyed. Durability is even improved when the modules are subjected to significant point loads. The new FRT variant was, for instance, deployed to convey painted radiators and the FRT surface really extended the service lives of these belts considerably.
The new S8-0 FRT1 PP BL (R4 BG) W229 Prolink FRT module (module art. no. 98345499) can therefore be used in all applications where belts need to be durable, incision-resistant and offer good product grip.
