PU conveyor belts are also called polyurethane conveyor belts, and PVC conveyor belts are industrial conveyor belts, but they differ in composition. From the data of consulting and purchase, PU conveyor belts and PVC conveyor belts have always been the products that customers have consulted and purchased the most. On the choice of problems, new and old customers often have such problems, which one is better for PVC conveyor belts and PU conveyor belts? In fact, there are no good or bad problems, just the industry and equipment that are not suitable for you.
So how do you choose the right conveyor belt for your industry and equipment?
If you are transporting food, such as candy, pasta, meat, seafood, baked goods, etc., PU conveyor belt is preferred.
The reasons are as follows:
1: PU conveyor belt is made of polyurethane (polyurethane), transparent, clean, non-toxic and tasteless, and can be in direct contact with food.
2: PU conveyor belt has the characteristics of oil resistance, water resistance and cutting resistance, the belt body is thin, the toughness is good, and the tensile strength is increased.
3: FDA food grade certification
Polyurethane (PU) is a material that is soluble in nature and is called green raw material. Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) contains substances that are harmful to humans. Therefore, if it is related to the food industry, from the perspective of food safety, the choice of PU conveyor belt is the best.
4: Considering the durability, the PU conveyor belt can be cut to a certain thickness and can be used for the cutter, and it can be cut repeatedly.
PVC conveyor belts are mainly used for food packaging and transportation and non-food transportation. Its price is lower than that of the PU conveyor belt, and its service life is generally shorter than that of the polyurethane conveyor belt.
