Belts for the Leather Industry

Endless needled belts for leather ironers with a precision ground surface to guarantee an easy handling of the hides.

Silicone coated pressure belts for laminating,  impregnating, finishing, dyeing and lacquering machines. Very thin but mechanically strong, these belts offer a firm grip of as well as an easy release of the processed leather and will not be damaged by solvents.

Belts for the Flooring Industry

Silicone coated belts with a high resistance to pressure and excellent resilience for the production of linoleum flooring panels.

A  real improvement over traditional woven belts that leave imprints on the panels.

Belts for Coated Products

Silicone coated belts for automated coating lines. The fine machine grinding that results in a smooth and thoroughly even belt surface are ideal for keeping the fine layer of the adhesive compound within the strictest of tolerances, thus enabling users to dramatically cut costs resulting from over or undercoating of their products.

 

The ITB Textiles Division supplies the textile industry with a wide range of seamless felt and belt solutions. Over the years these have become a reference standard in terms of quality and performance for any textile finishing department.

Compacting Felts

Developed together with the main OEM’s, their compacting felts are designed for tubular or open-width knitted fabrics.

Made with 100% Nomex© fibres they have a very flexible and smooth non-marking surface which ensures maximum shrinkage and dimensional stability of processed fabric and a long working life.

One only premium felt style with thickness range from 12mm to 22mm is suitable for all brands of compacting calenders.

Nomex© is a registered trademark by DuPont.

Decatising Felt Blankets and Shrink on Sleeves

Specifically designed for continuous decatising and setting machines, they have a seamless construction to leave no imprints and are fleece-layered to give the fabric a softer, fuller hand.

In addition, the ITB decatising felts and shrink-on sleeves offer excellent stability and tracking properties.

Special style with heat and chemical resistant synthetic fibres available for the most modern machines with pressurized steam.

Sanfor Felt Blankets

The sanfor felts are made of special technical grade fibres having a high tensile strength for use in the production of woven fabrics such as denim, bed sheeting,  shirting, terry and other types. They are heat-set and pre-stressed for dimensional stability, are finely textured on both sides and guarantee excellent air permeability.

Special fibres may be used or chemical treatments applied for demanding applications.

Transfer Printing Felt Blankets

These seamless felt blankets are made with 100% Nomex© fibres to withstand even the highest temperatures. They are heat-set for minimal widthwise shrinkage and provide a precise and uniformed transfer of colours to the processed fabric with the sharpest definition.

The ITB transfer printing felts, available in widths up to 5000mm, are the choice of the world’s foremost machine manufacturers.

Silicone and Polyurethane Coated Endless Felt Belts

Endless needled felt (seamless felt) belts coated with silicone and smoothly ground for use on high-performance continuous pressing/setting machines for woollen and wool blended fabrics.

These belts, coated with special chemical-resistant silicones to the exact specifications of machine manufacturers with an unrivalled level of surface finish and durability, withstand pressures exceeding 10kg/cm2.

ITB silicone coated belts also equip special calenders used to laminate different fabric layers.
