Cold vulcanizing adhesive for repairing conveyor belts
The active use of conveyors in production leads to the repair or joining of conveyor belts. There are different methods and ways to repair conveyor belts. But the fastest and least expensive method is the cold vulcanization method. To date, there are many companies that offer components for the quick repair of rubber and rubber conveyor belts using cold vulcanization. These materials and components are necessary for a quality repair. For this method, industrial two-component adhesive is most often used.
This method has its undeniable advantages:
- Minimum connection time;
- Low cost;
- Reduce downtime;
- Quality repair
- Wide range of applications
It is possible to repair using this method using two-component adhesives:
- Through breakouts;
- Cross cuts;
- Longitudinal cuts;
- Envelope damage.
The cold vulcanization method is most often used to repair conveyor belts if a vulcanizer is not available. And also in the presence of explosive substances in the production. But this does not mean that the cold vulcanization method using a two-component industrial adhesive is impossible for large rooms. This method is universal.
Repair and docking of conveyor belts is carried out by specialized companies, but simple, current repairs can be done on your own, in which case you need to purchase a quality cold vulcanizing glue, special tools (extruder gun, etc.), and consumables.
Adhesive used for the cold vulcanization method
Cold vulcanizing glue is needed for high-strength bonding of various materials. You can glue materials such as:
Rubber with rubber, metal with rubber, rubber with fabric, and rubber with leather. Glue for the cold vulcanization method is used two-component. Glue is applied to repair of local rubber-cable and rubber-fabric tapes. The use of industrial adhesives increases the reliability of the joint up to 75% of the strength of the tape itself.
The use of a two-component adhesive makes it possible to repair the conveyor belt in the shortest possible time.
Adhesive for the cold vulcanization method performs a range of works, such as:
- Installing buckets;
- Installation of corrugated robots on the conveyor belt;
- Drum lining
How to Apply Cold Cure Glue
It is necessary to prepare the surface before the gluing step. Dry and clean surfaces must be degreased. Shiny spots and any other contamination must be removed from the metal parts to be bonded. Achieve a slight roughness by grinding with a grinding wheel or brush for metal. When bonding rubber to metal, the surface must be degreased.
The advantages of cold vulcanization when using a two-component adhesive
The main advantages of the cold vulcanization method using an industrial two-component adhesive:
- A wide range of repair work;
- High reliability of the joint;
- Minimum repair times;
- Does not require special equipment;
- No additional cost;
- Not inferior in strength to mechanical joints;
- Easy application method;
- High tear strength;
- Withstands low temperatures;
- Withstands high temperatures.
- Repair of web jointing is possible even without removal from the conveyor;
- Repairs can be made without energizing the equipment;
- You can apply this repair method in small rooms;
- This method can be used for repairs with closely spaced explosives;
To date, the method of cold vulcanization using a two-component adhesive is one of the best in the repair of rubber and rubber-fabric belts. For industrial production, this method has many advantages and practically no disadvantages.
