  • First-Class Belt Components and Rigorous Quality Control


    Intralox belts and components are manufactured in various plastic materials, each with distinct properties and characteristics, to ensure that we meet the specific needs of your application.

    Intralox standard belt materials:

    • Polypropylene (PP) is a standard material that’s suitable for use in many general applications where chemical resistance to acids, bases, salts, and alcohols may be required. A relatively strong material in normal use, polypropylene exhibits a somewhat brittle quality at low temperatures.
    • Polyethylene (PE), another lightweight thermoplastic, is characterized by superior fatigue resistance, high impact strength, and flexibility. It is chemically resistant to many acids, bases, and hydrocarbons and can be used at lower temperatures than polypropylene.  
    • Acetal (PA) thermoplastics are considerably stronger than PP and PE. Acetal features a good balance of mechanical, thermal, and chemical properties and a low coefficient of friction. 

    Most of the time, one of Intralox’s standard belt materials will be suitable for your application. If this is not the case, we can provide you with one of the following special application belt materials to meet your needs:

    • Electrically Conductive (EC) Acetal
    • High Strength Electrically Conductive (HSEC) Acetal
    • Heat Resistant (HR) Nylon 
    • Impact Resistant (IR) Nylon
    • Abrasion Resistant (AR) Nylon
    • Flame Retardant Thermoplastic Polyester (FR-TPES)
    • Polypropylene Composite (PPC)
    • Detectable Polypropylene
    • X-ray Detectable Acetal
    • High Speed Intralon™
    • Enduralox™ Polypropylene
