Flexane® Belt Repair Kit
This conveyor belt would receive extreme wear from the impacting of large size aggregate. Mechanical clips were used to temporarily repair torn or worn areas of the belt. The previous method of repair was to vulcanize. Vulcanizing was expensive and would require lengthy unscheduled shut down time.
Complete repair area including the belt and mechanical clips were roughened using a grinding machine and wire wheel attachment. Surfaces were then chemically cleaned using Cleaner Blend 300. Mechanical clips were then primed using FL10 Metal Primer. A second coat of FL20 Rubber Primer was applied over the mechanical clips and rubber following a 15 minute cure of the FL10 Metal Primer. FL10 Metal Primer must cure or dry for 15 minutes before applying a second coat of FL20 Rubber Primer. FL10 Metal Primer is not require for rubber only repairs such as with this pulley lagging. Flexane 80 Putty is mixed and applied over the complete repair area replacing the worn or missing rubber. Flexane 80 Putty is smoothed and feathered using a putty knife.
