Finishing of cut edges.

The belting has square cut edges. Standard practice is for the cut edges to be treated with a heat gun, after which a quick dry red paint is applied. The performance of the belting will not be affected by the omission of the painted edges, which are mainly for cosmetic purposes, though the paint does act as a barrier to moisture.
Sold by the linear metre, orders for multiples will be supplied in a single open length.
We can join this belting for you using a vulcanising technique to form an endless belt, see the vulcanised joint section for details.
