Hot Vulcanization creates a splice by using heat and chemicals. This mode of splicing is more involved and requires special tools, expertise, and a clean, temperature- and moisture-controlled environment. If done correctly, however, this type of splice is smoother and typically more durable than a mechanical splice. Hot vulcanization creates splices by using heat and pressure through use of a vulcanizing press
We have several high-tech vulcanizing presses with dimensions up to 2400 mm (belt width) and up to 2000 mm (length of the junction).
TECHNO CAST can perform hot vulcanizing on conveyor belts with textile and metal carcasses.
Cold Vulcanizing (Gluing):
Cold vulcanization creates a splice through use of chemicals that bond two pieces of belt.
TECHNO CAST technical teams only use premium quality adhesives from renowned brands with excellent bonding properties.
We have a warehouse that complies with the storage rules for perishable products such as uncured rubber, glues and rubber-gums.
Mechanical joints (with clips):
Mechanical splicing is a versatile solution because it can be done in many different environments and on many types of belts. It is typically used in applications in which belts go through lots of wear and tear or need to be continuously expanded, or on belts in dirty, high-moisture environments or cramped spaces. These applications include mining, quarry and other heavy-duty applications.
Mechanical splicing with clips is also used as a quick troubleshooting/repair solution.
We use the Flexco (USA) brand of staples to make the mechanical joints. We are able to define with you the appropriate type of staples for your application.
