DuraFab® Anti Static PTFE (24 Series)
DuraFab® Anti-Static belts are specially formulated to dissipate surface static build-up during operation. These belts are black in color, are manufactured from woven fiberglass substrates, have an optimum PTFE (Fluon®) content and a proprietary additive. The Anti-Static Belts have the highest thermal conductivity (best heat transfer) of any of the DuraFab® products and is best used in applications where surface static dissipation is desired such as, garment fusing and fabric lamination applications.
DuraFab® PTFE Coated Belt Characteristics
DuraFab® Belts are engineered to retain the distinctive properties of PTFE; however, by adding a glass fabric to the matrix, AFC is able to obtain the added benefits of dimensional stability, excellent tensile strength and extremely low elongation (<1%). DuraFab® Belts have received USDA approval for food processing and handling, and are FDA compliant (21 CFR177.1550). In addition, the DuraFab® belts can operate in temperatures from -400°F (-240°C) under static conditions and -100°F (-73°C) under dynamic conditions up to 550°F (288°C).
