Advanced Belt Repair Kit by Devcon® Protects Splice Clips from Damage

The new Devcon® R-Flex™ Belt Repair Kit can be used to coat splice clips on styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) conveyor belts, protecting them from damage and preventing them from catching on wiper systems. The kit contains everything needed to make rapid repairs to damaged heavyweight conveyor belts, allowing their return to service in 90 minutes.

Conveyors are the lifeblood of mining and aggregate operation. A gouge (left), tear (center), or delamination (right) in a belt can shut down a conveyor, bringing plant operations to a halt and costing thousands of dollars in repairs, downtime, and lost revenue.

An easy-to-mix hybrid polymer, R-Flex Compound has been formulated for increased flexibility to withstand flexing of clip splices. It can also be used to repair holes, tears, gouges, and damaged cold vulcanized splices and to protect hinged and solid plate fasteners. The new formulation offers longer open times in hot climates and improved resistance to crack propagation. R-Flex produces a tough monolithic surface that protects clip splices and prevents damage that exposed metal clips can cause to wiper systems. In fact, R-Flex has been field-proven to extend the life of belt repairs, reducing subsequent damage to the belt and other equipment, the frequency of repairs, and plant downtime. It can be applied over pulleys as small as 10 inches in diameter, self-levels in just 3 minutes, and provides superior long-term adhesion and abrasion resistance.
