Superba Heat Setting

Stainless Steel Belts

Our Stainless Steel belts are
manufactured in a variety of widths, hole sizes and surface finishes to meet the specific processing requirements of our customers. All belts incorporate a special “anticupping” design and are guaranteed to maintain straightness during processing which is key to improving belt life.

Counter Band Belts

Our Counter Bands are manufactured from special heat resistant fiber and are pre-treated to prevent elongation which is a major factor in preventing machine downtime. Our belts have continuously proven to offer better performance and life compared to the OEM product.

DayStrong Pressure Rolls

Daystrong Pressure Rolls are manufactured from a special rubber compound to resist abrasion, tearing and heat. The Rolls are designed to provide consistent sealing
with minimum pressure and
can be used on any fiber type
including nylon, polyester, wool, polypropylene and acrylic.
