The belts are made of various materials according to the purpose of their application. The most common materials are commercial bright steel, galvanized steel, stainless steel or heat-resistant steel and also acid-resistant steel. The temperature range of application of metal belts is from -200°C to +1200°C.
This material´s advantage is quite high tensile resistance at normal temperatures and relatively low price. It can be used for belts that are not exposed to humidity at operating temperatures not exceeding approximately 350°C.
It´s properties are the same as above and the galvanized finish of the wires makes them suitable for use in humid environment.
It is an alloy of iron and chrome or iron, chrome and nickel. Stainless steel is resistant to corrosion caused by humidity and also to acids and temperatures up to approximately 700°C.
Most commonly used materials are of grades DIN 1.4301, 1.4401 and 1.4310.
This is stainless chrome-nickel steel with chemical composition that makes it resistant to temperatures from 600°C to 1150°C. The most common material grades are steels with 3-5% Cr content for temperatures ranging from 600 to 700°C and DIN 1.4841, 1.4864, 1.4828, 1.4887 and other for higher temperatures.
