Reinforced Hytrel® belts have unique characteristics and are used (but not limited to) the following:
o Drive belts for low temperatures
o Transversally stiff belts (also applicable for edge guiding)
o Machine belts for paper conveying
o Machine belts for printing industry
o Conveying belts for personal hygiene industry
o Vacuum conveyors (perforations as per customer requirements, hole diameters from 1.5 mm up to 12 mm)

Hytrel® belts without reinforcement have unique characteristics and are used (but not limited to) the following:
o Used with fixed shaft centers
o Used as matched sets
o Excellent running properties
o Paper and receipt conveying (ATMs)
o Check sorting
o Credit card feeder
o Vacuum conveyors (perforations as per customer requirements, hole diameters from 1.5 mm up to 12 mm)
o Weighing belts

Properties of Hytrel®:
