Resistant Non-Slip Belts may be the only elastic belts that work well in slippery oily environments. These round belts are composed of metal springs with a virtually seamless joint that screws together -- no hooks to scratch rollers. The spring provides elasticity and does not hydroplane on the oil like smooth belts, so it grips surfaces better and slips less. The oil protects the surfaces from being abraded by the metal spring.
All our oil resistant non-slip belts (also called Spring Belts) are
available as both endless belts and connectable belts.
Operating temperature range for music wire springs is -90° to
300°F (450°F for stainless steel springs).
Note that elastic urethane belts have excellent oil resistant and
often work well in applications where there are small amounts of
oil, but they tend to slip in very oily environments because they
hydroplane. In such cases our slip resistant spring belts usually
perform much better.
