Hot & Cold Splicing
Conveyor belt repairs can take operations offline for a substantial period. Ingwe Splicing and Maintenance utilize hot and cold splicing methods to repair a conveyor belt to the best of our ability as well as to ensure that you are up and running as quickly as possible with the best solution.
Cold splicing can be used for most conveyor belt applications as it is not necessary to attach any large equipment to the conveyor belt. Cold splicing of your conveyor belt can be a good solution for low tension operations that do not convey hot materials. Cold splicing uses a bonding agent that causes a chemical reaction. This chemical reaction ensures that cross-connections between different monomer chains are created. This splices the two ends of the belt together.
Hot splicing uses extreme heat and pressure to bond the two ends together. Once the materials have cooled down, the joint will be a smooth, seamless and long-lasting splice. We can do this process both on and off site by using a mobile vulcanising press. In short, we will make every effort to make your splice joints as strong and as durable as possible.
Hot and cold splicing of belts require meticulous preparation to prevent contamination of the splicing area. Cold splicing requires relatively warm conditions and low moisture to ensure the cold vulcanizing cements work optimally.
