Conveyor and processing belts with tension members made of recycled PET: Transilon ECOFIBER
Compared with the primary material and in an identical quality, yarns made of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) save valuable raw materials and help reduce the production of more plastic. First-class tension member fabric for fabric-based conveyor belts is made from these yarns. R-PET or rPET stands for recycled PET.
The recycled material for the ECOFIBER yarns made of rPET is obtained from post-consumer drinks bottles. These drinks bottles have already been used and are then are shredded following careful separation and washing. The resulting flakes are cleaned again, then melted down and processed into pellets, which act as raw material for various types of yarn. Forbo Movement Systems only uses fabric whose yarns are made of rPET for the new ECOFIBER conveyor belts.
Combined with our patented AMPMISER on the underside, extra energy savings are possible during operation, which also helps reduce carbon emissions.
