PU conveyor belt is also called polyurethane conveyor belt, it is very similar to PVC conveyor belt, both are industrial conveyor belts. Many people do not know whether to choose PU belt or PVC belt. In fact, their main difference lies in the material. There is no question of good or bad, just whether it is suitable for the original industry and equipment. If you are transporting food, such as candy, pasta, meat, seafood, baked goods, etc., the first choice is the PU conveyor belt. Next, this article will introduce the advantages of PU belts compared with PVC belts.
The smell of PVC belt is heavy. Because the PU conveyor belt is made of PU (polyurethane) as its rubber surface, it has no peculiar smell. When in contact with food, it will not produce any peculiar smell.
Direct contact with food
PVC conveyor belt contains harmful substances to the human body, so it should not be in direct contact with food. The transparent PU conveyor belt is transparent and clean, in line with FDA food-grade certification, can be in direct contact with food, and is resistant to oil, washing, and cutting.
PU conveyor belts are more environmentally friendly than PVC conveyor belts, because PU (polyurethane) is a material that can be decomposed by nature and is also called a green material.
In terms of durability, PU conveyor belts are more resistant to cutting than PVC conveyor belts. And the PU conveyor belt can also be used for repeated cutting work on the cutting machine at a certain thickness.
PU conveyor belt rebounds faster
The elastic PVC conveyor belt rebounds slowly after being folded, and the PU conveyor belt rebounds quickly.
PU conveyor belt is specially treated: high-strength synthetic polyurethane fabric is used as the bearing frame, and the coating layer is made of polyurethane (PU) resin. It not only has the characteristics of high tensile strength, good bending, lightness, thinness and toughness of ordinary conveyor belts, but also oil resistance, non-toxic and hygienic, and easy to clean. This type of conveyor belt fully complies with the US FDA sanitary standards. Wear-resistant, resistant to physical aging, it is a durable product for conveying food.
