CROSS STABILIZED BASE BELT : TEXRIGID ®
The main required characteristic of a base belt suitable for Flexobord applications is the controlled transversal stiffness, also named cross stabilized construction.
Standard base belt without any specific transversal stiffness can be used only for horizontal flat belts made with only corrugated
sidewalls and without transversal cleats.
The following sketches indicate the consequences due to a wrong choice of the base belt:
According to the heaviness of the application, the following base belt typologies are available:
XR Composed by only textile fabrics with high transversal stiffness; two special synthetic layers assure the correct cross stabilizing properties. They are provided with cut edges for light and medium applications.
This base construction can be sold as indipendent product with the brand name TEXRIGID®. The sketch on the right shows the cross stabilized construction.
