Detailed Guide on Construction of Your Belt

Whenever possible, have the following information available:

• Dimensions of belt: width and length

• Desired splice, edge reinforcement and tracking devices, where needed

• Pulley size and type

• Any special construction or instructions concerning the fabrication of your Taconic belt. In some cases of complex fabrication, a print may be requested.

There are a number of factors to keep in mind when choosing the belting material for your application:

• Temperature Range – Both our TFE and SRC-GLASS™ fabrics have the capabilities of withstanding -100°F - +500°F constant operating temperatures.

• Pliability – If the material is to track around pulleys that drive the belt, the diameter of the pulley is critical. The smaller the roller the more flexible the belt must be. Taconic’s thinner materials (0.010” and under) are more pliant that the heavier coated fabrics.

• Release Qualities – The surface finishes of our materials range from a rough, semi-porous finish to a super smooth surface. The release or fabric impression results desired will be a determining factor.

• Strength – Options to be considered are breaking, tensile and tear strength. How much of a load the belt carries, how fast it moves and how tightly it will be tensioned all must be considered.

Various fabrication options exist for your custom manufactured TFE-GLASS™ or SRC-GLASS™ belt. Following are some of the more common methods used:

Metallic Splices
alligator Alligator Splice
Taconic offers #1A galvanized or #1A stainless steel alligator splices. These splices are the most durable and are the easiest to use. Belts utilizing alligator or clipper splices can be installed without taking machinery apart. A coverflap can be added to reduce heat transfer to your material.
clipper Clipper Splice
Taconic offers OTSS and #25 stainless steel clipper splices. These splices are the most durable and are the easiest to use. Belts utilizing clipper and alligator splices can be installed without taking machinery apart. A coverflap can be added to reduce heat transfer to your material.
Non-Metallic Splices
peeklacing Peek Splice
Peek splices are an ideal choice when metallic splices cannot be used. Either a peek splice or a smartloop splice should be chosen when maximum airflow is desired.
smartloop Smartloop Splice
Smartloop splices are an ideal choice when metallic splices cannot be used. Either a peek splice or a smartloop splice should be chosen when maximum airflow is desired.
fabricnotch Fabric Notch Splice
A fabric notch splice is similar to the alligator splice but completely eliminates the metal clip. It uses a PTFE Kevlar(R) material with a special pin for joining.
Endless Splices
buttsplice Butt Splice
The ends of the belt are butted together and joined by sealing a strip of reinforcing fabric under the butted ends. Butt splices provide the smoothest belt surface at the joint and eliminate the step-down surface which is characteristic of the overlap splice.
overlapsplice Overlap Splice
This is the standard splice for most applications. Overlap splices, normally cut and overlapped on a 90, 60 or 45 degree angle, are also commonly used since they are more flexible when running on smaller diameter rollers. Standard overlap splices are 1".
scarfedsplice Scarfed Splice
To prepare a scarfed splice, the ends of the belt are "scarfed", or sanded down and joined eliminating the double thickness at the splice which is characteristic of the overlap splice, and eliminates the need for a heat-sealed reinforcement at the splice characteristic of the butt splice.

Edge Reinforcements

Taconic belts can be supplied with strips of heat-sealed film or fabric on one or both edges of your belt. This reinforcement serves a dual purpose; it reduces fraying of belt edges which rub on guiding rollers and it also provides the strongest possible anchor for guiding pins, snaps and grommets.

filmsealededge TFE-Film Edge, Heat-Sealed
TFE film edges are heat-sealed to the top and bottom of the edges of the belt for a 1/2" or 1" (standard) surface. The TFE film is available in 3 mil, black or clear, or 10 mil tan (1" surface only).
fabricsealededge Fabric Edge, Heat-Sealed
Six mil fabric is heat-sealed to the top and bottom of the edges of the belt for a 1" (standard) or 2" surface. Fabric edges are available either tan or black.
fabricsewnandsealed Fabric Edge, Sewn & Sealed
For extra reinforcement, our six mil heat-sealed fabric edge can also be sewn if desired. This reinforcement is commonly used on open mesh belting.

Tracking & Guiding Devices

Taconic offers a variety of options to guide belts on your machine. These devices can be placed on one or both edges of your belts.

snap Snaps
Nickel snaps are available in .177" diameter and .199" deep.
grommet Grommets
Nickel plated brass grommets are offered in three sizes: #00, #0, and #1.
silicone Silicone Rubber Guide
A silicone rubber guide is also available.

Two-Ply Belts

Two-ply belts are constructed of two plies of TFE-GLASS™, laminated together with staggered splices. This provides a smooth, continuous thickness along the entire belt length which guarantees a uniform seal in packaging and heat-sealing applications. The belts are typically available in widths of ½" – 3".
