FlatClean™ is a USDA approved, all-purpose polyurethane flat belt reinforced with Kevlar­® tensile members.
The combination of a non-fraying polyurethane jacket material with sealed tensile members minimizes belt stretch,
reduces retensioning and extends belt life. These belts are particularly well suited for standard to high loads
or any cleated belts.

FlatClean FC9 belting is made using a coextrusion process that allows for two different resin hardnesses:

  • Bottom of belt has a harder durometer urethane for greater abrasion resistance
  • Top of belt has a softer urethane for better product retention and improved wrap around smaller diameter pulleys
