An exceptionally strong metal splice which fastens mechanically and is very flexible. Splice components are locked into reinforced belt ends which are then meshed and joined by a pin.
A standard splice in which the belt ends are overlapped from 1/2" to 2" and heat sealed together. A double fabric thickness will result. Excellent for most non-thickness-critical applications. Splice can be angled from 22? to 90?, and can be stitched for additional strength.
Belt ends are butted. Fabric reinforcement is placed beneath the splice. Components are then joined by a heat seal. Splice can be angled from 22? to 90?. Perfect for applications requiring an uninterrupted belt work surface. Splice can be stitched for additional strength.
FABRIC FLAP OVER SPLICE
Typically, a Teflon? coated fiberglass fabric flap placed over the splice area. Silicone coated fiberglass also available. Flap is heat sealed and/or stitched to belt. Usually applied to belts with metal splices (alligator/clipper). Protects splice from abrasion and provides a continuous release surface.
