Solar-Shield series of heat resistant compounds offer high performance in extremely hot material applications.


Cover Compounds

Solar-Shield Classic

A compound formulated for excellent heat and abrasion resistance up to 350 °F (180 °C).

Solar-Shield Plus

A compound designed to retain flexibility while conveying materials with higher temperatures. Resists cover cracks and carcass delamination when intermittently exposed to loads up to 400 °F (200 °C) for longer life and reduced operating costs.

Solar-Shield Extreme

An exceptional hot material compound with superior heat resistance against hardening and cracking. Designed to handle hot material loads intermittentlyup to 750 °F (400 °C). Improved heat resistance means longer belt life.

Solar-Shield Ultimate

Compounded for the ultimate protection in high temperature applications above 750 °F (400 °C). Improved heat resistance extends belt life 2-3 times beyond other heat belt solutions for reduced belt replacement costs and improved business results.

The maximum allowable temperature is influenced by the type of material and material shape. For example, is the system conveying fines or larger diameter materials that support air flow and cooling. In enclosed systems (e.g. elevator belt, pipe conveyor) the maximum allowable temperature is reduced. Conversely, higher material temperatures can be conveyed depending on material size, system design and high temperature solution selected.
