Saint-Gobain Chemfab® TCK® 1589 High-Strength Plain Weave Open Mesh Belting Material
Categories: Ceramic; Glass; Glass Fiber

Material Notes: Description: General Notes on Saint Gobain Chemfab® TCK® Open Mesh Belting Products:
TCK belting products are PTFE (PTFE = polytetrafluoroethylene) coated Kevlar®, a high-temperature aramid fiber that offers an extremely high strength-to-weight ratio. TCK is an excellent fabric for use in high moisture environments, for applications subjected to severe flexing, or for when added durability is required.
Dimensional Stability: The Kevlar® base of TCK keeps stretch or shrinkage to less than 1% under normal operating tensions (3 to 10 pounds per inch of width) and temperatures up to 500°F. TCK belting has excellent resistance to flex fatigue.
Release Properties: The release properties of TCK exceed those of any other available belting material. TCK has a low coefficient of friction.
Chemically Resistant: The PTFE coating encapsulates the Kevlar® belting carcass and enhances its useful service life.
Light Weight: The inherent strength of the Kevlar® filament provides durable belting at a fraction of the weight of other materials. Less power is required to move TCK belting (and the products moved).
High Strength: Kevlar®, the filament base of the belting carcass, is stronger than steel on a pound-for-pound basis.
Flex Fatigue Resistant: The strength of TCK, combined with its excellent flex fatigue properties, means TCK belting can be used on small pulley diameters for a long in-use life span.
High Thermal Capability: At temperatures of up to 500°F, TCK belting continues to maintain its high performance profile.
Low Thermal Mass: TCK belting (including the seam areas) quickly dissipates heat with low heat sink properties.
Fabrication Technology: Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics belt seams have been specifically engineered to reduce the flex fatigue failure. Substantially reduced flex fatigue means longer belt life. All data based on a 0.018 inch test sample.
