Adhesion Tests - Belts
Transmission belts, conveyor belts , v belts are made with many plies of fabric that are adhered to each other using inner layers of elastomers.
Belts operate on equipment that requires repeated flexing over pulleys on the conveyor or rollers. This repeated flexing action stresses the ply adhesion of conveyor belts. Hence, it is important for the belt to have adequate ply adhesion to resist ply separation to avoid costly failures of the systems.
Maeon Laboratories perform the Adhesion tests by determining the adhesion strength between plies of fabric bonded with rubber or the adhesion of the rubber layer in V belts, conveyor belts, other transmission belts.
