Dura-Belt’s Oil Resistant Non-Slip Belts may be the only elastic belts that work well in slippery oil, goo and syrup environments. These round belts are composed of metal springs with a virtually seamless joint that screws together -- no hooks to scratch rollers. The spring provides elasticity and does not hydroplane on oil or goo (e.g., cola syrup) like smooth belts, so it grips surfaces better and slips less.
Oil or goo usually protect surfaces from being abraded
by the metal spring. Since there is no jacket on the outside of
these springs, they should not be used on surfaces that are not
coated by oil, goo or syrup.
Acid attacks our regular music wire steel belts and causes them to rust. If goo that drips onto rollers contains acid (e.g. cola syrup contains citric acid), please specify stainless steel spring belts.
Operating temperature range for music wire springs is -90° to
300°F (450°F for stainless steel springs).
