Custom Molded Buna/Chloroprene Conveyor Belt Cleat, Rubber Bonded to Aluminum Extrusion

Custom Molded Buna/Chloroprene Conveyor Belt Cleat, Rubber Bonded to Aluminum Extrusion The project highlighted here involved the engineering, design, custom compounding of rubber, and bonding for a conveyor belt part used in the water and sewage treatment industry. The part was composed of buna and neoprene, bonded to extruded aluminum. This conveyor belt cleat is an example of Poly Seal’s ability to fabricate a custom rubber product that meets difficult requirements. The part was manufactured using a state-of-the-art 300 ton hydraulic compression press, and extruder, to produce a specially formulated rubber part that was bonded to aluminum inserts. It withstands exposure to water and sewage, while having high levels of tear, abrasion, and chemical resistance. The finished product featured dimensions of 28” by 7” by 7”, with a tightest tolerance of ± 0.010".

Quality and integrity was confirmed through bond strength and durometer testing.
