PTFE belts are used to apply synthetic rubber backing to carpeting. AFC has engineered products specifically for the carpet industry. AFC's PTFE conveyor belts convey the uncured synthetic rubber backing through the manufacturing process. The woven fiber (carpet) overlay is bonded to the uncured synthetic rubber as the belt conveys it through a curing oven.
The PTFE conveyor belt's non-stick properties allow for an excellent release of the cured and bonded synthetic rubber. The belts are designed so that the finished belt is showing on the rubber backing.
AFC conveyor belts have been designed to outperform and outlast all competitive materials. Our materials can be supplied in roll form, slit to size, or as a finished belt.
