Plylon Plus® Belts

Plylon Plus® is our premium all-purpose fabric conveyor belt construction that can be used in a variety of industries and applications with most of our exclusive Continental rubber cover compounds.

In applications that include crusher, pit, slope and other high-abuse applications, our Plylon Plus® 200, 250 and 450 PIW fabric belts have proven their dependability. The workhorse of our line-up, millions of feet of Plylon Plus belt are operating worldwide with outstanding success. The key is our unique double-faced 2-1 twill fabric design.
The polyester warp cords of the Plylon Plus® fabric are twisted into sets of individual strands, then fashioned into a cabled cord. Compare the configurations of Plylon Plus® and our competitors’ and you’ll find that the Plylon Plus® belt provides significantly more flexibility, which enables you to reduce pulley size and costs. And that’s just the beginning of the Plylon Plus® belt savings story.

Plylon Plus® 200, 250 and 450 PIW fabric conveyor belts demonstrate superior resistance to tears, rips and impact. They also provide unsurpassed adhesion values, patented anti-stringing and fraying properties.

CABLE TWISTED WARP CORD

Within each warp cord are nine individual strands of polyester cords. Three sets of three are twisted together, then twisted into a single cord.

DOUBLE-FACED 2/1 TWILL WEAVE

Superior flexibility is ensured by the unique weave pattern of Plylon Plus 200, 250 and 450 PIW fabrics. As shown, the face warp cords on the top surface of the fabric cross over three fill cords, go under one, over three, under one, and so on. Beneath the fabric are back warp cords. They are arranged in the opposite fashion of the face cords—going under three fill cords, over one, under three, etc. Competitive belts place their warp cords over three, under three…which compromises flexibility and promotes edge fray.

Benefits & Features

Excellent fastener holding retention

Excellent fastener holding retention

High strength fill cords enhance mechanical fastener holding ability and resist fastener pull-out for reliable performance and increased uptime.

Excellent rip, tear and impact resistance

Excellent rip, tear and impact resistance

Specially designed crimped warp cords straighten on impact and then recover their original shape. This enables the fabric to absorb greater impact loads and resist tearing for long-lasting durability and a lower cost-per-ton conveyed.

High ultimate strength

High ultimate strength

Plylon Plus. withstands severe tension spikes at start up, retains mechanical fasteners and withstands continuous flexing around pulleys. This higher ultimate strength makes a critical difference in abusive operating conditions.
 

Reduced stretch

Reduced stretch

The combination of fabric design and dip process provides lower elasticity and permanent elongation on all specifications. This minimizes take-up concerns and reduces the number of splices at break-in. Contact your local Sales Representative to calculate permanent and elastic elongation requirements for your specific systems.

Standard bias step splices

Standard bias step splices

A quick and effective technique, step splices greatly reduce downtime and are recognized throughout the industry as the standard. The vulcanized splice in Plylon Plus retains 100% of belt tension rating during all running conditions.
