Our Conveyor Belt
Polyester Fabric
Polyester fabric (EP fabric), usually called Carcass, is an important part of the conveyor belt. It is a heavy duty fabric that provides high tensile stength and good trough ability. It acts as the reinforcing layer giving strength and flexibility to the conveyor belt itself. We selectively choose only high quality polyester fabric to manufacture our conveyor belt. The polyester fabric and other raw materials from each source must first pass our tests before it can be put into the production line. This is to make sure that we have quality conveyor belt before passing to our customers.

EP fabric uses different type of fibre yarn in weaving.
  1. The warp yarn is polyester yarn which provides good tensile strength and less elongation. It allows conveyor belt to support high loads with less stretch to the conveyor belt itself.
  2. The weft yarn is polyamide (nylon) yarn which provides good flexibility, helps distributing the impact to provide a whole stability to fabric structure.
There are many specifications of EP fabric for making conveyor belt, please see the table below for selection guideline or contact us for more detail.
