Special Backings

In addition to our standard backing types, we offer special backings, such as Novo Fleece and Chrome Leather. Both backings are applied with adhesive bonding.

Novo Fleece

  • Material: Polyester

  • Color: Anthracite

  • Hardness: Incapable of measurement

  • Material Thickness: 1.2 mm

  • Minimum Diameter: 0.25 mm

  • Attributes: Suited for high temperature ranges; good resistance against oil and fat

  • Applications: General conveying applications or glass processing

Chrome Leather

  • Material: Leather

  • Color: Grey

  • Hardness: 65 Shore A

  • Material Thickness: 2 mm / 3 mm

  • Minimum Diameter: 0.90 mm

  • Attributes: Excellent coefficient of friction; good abrasion resistance; excellent oil resistance

  • Applications: General conveying applications

Polyamide Fabric

Polyamide fabric on tooth and/or back reduces the coefficient of friction and provides smooth and enhanced operation characteristics for custom designed applications. Polyamide fabric is added to the belt during the extrusion process.


  • Low coefficient of friction

  • High wear resistance

  • Good sliding attributes

  • Low noise operation

  • Good resistance against oil and fat


  • Accumulating conveyor

  • Sliding applications

Polyamide Fabric on Tooth side

  • Code: NT / Nylon® Tooth

  • Color: Green

Polyamide Fabric on Back

  • Code: NB / Nylon® Back

  • Color: Green

Polyamide Fabric on Tooth and Back

  • Code: NTB / Nylon® Tooth and Back

  • Color: Green

Special Fabric

ECO Fabric offers both antistatic features, as well as an extremely low coefficient of friction. Depending on its application area, ECO also provides an extended service life in comparison to the standard polyamide fabric. The special antistatic fabric is available for standard pitches such as T5 / T10 / AT5 / AT10.

ECO Fabric on Tooth and Back

  • Color: Anthracite

Further backings, thicknesses and special dimensions are available on request.
