Benefits & features

Heat-resistant cover resists cracking and hardening

Heat-resistant cover resists cracking and hardening

Solar-Shield XL 750 belting performs over the long run while retaining its flexibility despite punishing conditions and loads. Less cracking and hardening translates into longer life and reduced replacement costs. Solar-Shield XL 750 compound improves heat resistance above and beyond our 400°∆F (204°∆C) compound and significantly extends belt life. Solar-Shield XL 750 was designed to handle hot material loads intermittently up to 750°∆F (399°∆C), providing extreme longevity in severe heat applications.

High-temperature resistance to tearing and abrasion

High-temperature resistance to tearing and abrasion

Load after load, Solar-Shield XL 750 stands up to prolonged exposure. This reduced maintenance and downtime helps lower overall operating costs.

Synthetic carcass construction

Solar-Shield synthetic carcass provides great dimensional stability and strength at high temperatures and operating tensions up to 1200 PIW.

Solar-Shield® carcass with fiberglass reinforcement

Fiberglass reinforcement throughout all plies of the carcass provides maximum protection when temperatures are not constant. The carcass stands up to “hot shots,” resisting burn-through up to 1000°∆F (538°∆C).
