Cold Splicing

All belts cold spliced are subject to a curing period after the splicing is completed. This period varies from belt type to belt type.  

Light duty P.V.C. belting

Can only be spliced with the overlap method as the P.V.C. does not flow when a cold adhesive is used. Belts can be supplied already prepared, with adhesive so clients may install the belt themselves, or may be fitted and glued by an on site team.  

Transmission belts

Can be cold spliced by preparing them as per hot, applying the adhesives and then clamping the joint between two pieces of wood or metal plates for 24 hours and then run.   Heavy duty P.V.C. ( solid woven ) The only relatively successful method of joining one of these belts is by chamfering (skiving) the ends of the belt and using a cold P.V.C. Adhesive, (out of preference a hot splice is used).  

Rubber belting

Is joined with the overlap method as with Hot splicing, the main difference being the use of longer step lengths as the strength of a cold splice is not the same as that of hot, also a cold splice is normally slightly thicker than a hot one. Cold splicing can be done in a workshop or on site. A curing period of up to 8 hours is required after splicing. If time is relevant a fast curing adhesive may be used requiring only ± 2 hours after splicing. Normal cold glue will only reach its ultimate cure strength after approx. 72 hours.
