Products > PTFE Belting > Mesh-Kevlar (57 Series)

Product Description


DuraFlow® Kevlar® Mesh belts are manufactured from woven Kevlar® substrates that have been coated with PTFE. The DuraFlow® Kevlar® Mesh series is an excellent choice for heavy-duty applications or in drying applications where there is steam or moisture. DuraFlow® Kevlar® Mesh belts are dramatically higher in tensile and tear strengths. These belts are manufactured from proprietary woven Kevlar® with openings that range from 1/16”to 1/4.”

DuraFlow® Kevlar® Mesh Belting Properties


DuraFab® Premium Kevlar® Fabrics are engineered to maintain their unique flexibility, dimensional stability, dielectric and tensile strength, and non-stick properties, while performing under the harshest environmental conditions. AFC’s fabrics are abrasion, tear, puncture, fire and chemical resistant; they also maintain their unique properties under pressure and extreme temperatures: -100° F to 575° F (-73° C to 302° C). DuraFab® Premium Kevlar® Fabrics have received USDA and NSF approval for direct food contact and are FDA compliant (21 CFR177.1550).

Benefits / Applications

 


Kevlar® is 5X stronger than steel on an
    equal weight basis, but lightweight & flexible
    at the same time.
High tensile strength at low weight
Higher UV resistance than glass
Carpet yarn processing
Textile dryer belts


Experiences no embitterment or degradation
    at –320 deg. F (same with Nomex)
Heavy Duty drying applications,
    particularly where steam is present

Additional applications exist. Contact AFC for more specific information.
