Teflon Conveyor Belt

Dryer Belts for Panther Machine

A Teflon conveyor belt has the same coating that is used on non stick cookware. Just like on cookware, it offers super non stick surface and can resist high temperatures.

Teflon is a brand name of Dupont for their PTFE product range.

Non stick coatings are what make our products unique. Because our conveyor belts are coated with PTFE and Teflon, they can be used in demanding applications.

A Teflon belt can be used for cooking foods. Another example would be carrying textiles through hot ovens. Some textiles are carried through ovens in order to remove moisture from the fabric.

Lots of other applications require Teflon Belting. Companies that produce tortilla and flat breads have a high demand for them. The belts being used require special coatings. The coating assist with a longer life.

We manufacture all types of Teflon mesh belting here at our facility in the UK. Teflon mesh belts can be made using a number of different mesh sizes. We can also make them with different mesh sizes.

We can produce a Teflon conveyor belt to suit all machine sizes. Some PTFE mesh belts can be made over five meters in width.

We produce belts in different colours. This depends on the applications they are being used in. Blue coloured belts are more commonly used for processing food.

Key features are that Teflon belts are heat resistant and non stick. They can withstand temperatures of up to 260 Celsius and as low as -73 Celsius.

The non stick properties ensure that products are easily removed from the belt surface. The term easy clean is more appropriate than non stick.

Techbelt manufactures a wide range of belts and work end users as well as OEM’s.

We have a dedicated Technical Sales Team who can assist with any query you may have.

How to bond two layers of PTFE (Teflon) Coated Kevlar together

This video shows how to bond two layers of PTFE coated Kevlar / Aramid coated glass cloth together.

We have used a clear PFA welding film in between the two layer which is the bonding film. On top of the joint we have used a blue cast film. This film is used to create a smoother step where the lip of the material is. This will reduce potential for lifting or catching in this area.

We have used on of our HWI-155 irons which is designed and built by Techbelt. This iron is set to 380C however we can change the settings for you should you need to higher temperature.

We typically hold the iron in one place before moving on for around 60 seconds. This can be tested before welding on an off cut of material to check the time and temperature is correct.

The red weight is used after the heat of the iron is removed to allow cooling under slight pressure. This helps to keep the joint as flat as possible.
