Steel cord conveyor belt construction

The Flexsteel® cord conveyor belt is made up of three critical components that give it its renowned superior strength: zinc-galvanised steel cords, insulation gum (core rubber) and outer rubber covers.

Zinc Galvanised Steel Cord

Flexsteel® belts are designed by selecting specific cord construction to provide the best tensioning for a particular application.

Insulation Gum (core rubber)

Extensive rubber compounding technology has enabled Flexsteel® engineers to develop a superior insulation gum bonding rubber which penetrates all cords. The result is excellent adhesions, corrosion resistance and splices that exceed the SANS and DIN specifications.

Outer Rubber Covers (cover compounds)

Our range of cover compounds provides your Flexsteel® conveyor belt with the ultimate protection against heat, fire and abrasion.
