Low Friction Conveyor Belts

Fabric sliding belt conveyors to enable sliding removal on the carrying side

CONTIFLEX® SLIDE conveyor belts are used when materials are removed on the carrying side by means of a sliding motion, e.g. over a steel, plastic, or wooden bed. Sliding belt conveyors are particularly wear-resistant thanks to the inclusion of a special bottom ply in the tension member; they also present a low sliding friction coefficient. Correct alignment of the belt on the conveyor is ensured by the latest continuous vulcanization process and a specially designed fabric.


  • Used when material is removed by sliding, for instance on a steel, plastic or wood surface
  • High wear resistance thanks to a special bottom ply in the tension member
  • Low sliding friction
  • Special fabric and continuous vulcanization ensure optimum operational tracking on the conveyor
  • This makes it much more difficult for foreign bodies and sharp-edged materials to penetrate the tension member
