RUBBER CONVEYOR BELTS WORN-OUT & THROUGH-HOLE REPAIRS
- For thin rubber thickness (3mm or less), the damaged zone must be roughen with an power tool wire brush at low rotation speed (750rpm to 900rpm) on and around the damaged zone. For thicker rubber thickness greater than 3mm, a 45° bevel must be cut around the edges of the damage area so as to create a trapezium shape around the damaged area. Roughen with an power tool wire brush at low rotation speed (750rpm to 900rpm) on and around the damaged zone. In the event of passing rips or damage, perform the same procedure including also the lower surface.
- Before applying the repair putty, ensure that the application surface is always be dry, clean, and free of impurities.
