A conveyor belt generally consists of one or more layers of material. The base layer is a woven polyester with carbon wire, pretreated with isocyanates. Then one or several layers of thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) are coated on top.

  • The inner ply provides strength and shape 
  • The outer ply is the top layer of the conveyor belt. It makes the belt more durable, giving it a higher scratch resistance
