Conveyor Belt Repair Kit

June 16, 2014

The Devcon R-Flex belt repair kit is formulated to quickly repair tears, gouges, and holes in styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) heavy-weight conveyor belts. Offering excellent abrasion resistance as well as superior adhesion, the R-Flex urethane compound is easy to mix and cures quickly — the repaired belt can be back in service just 90 minutes after application. In addition to the R-Flex resin and curing agent, each kit (available in 4- and 1.5-lb sizes) includes a two-part surface conditioner, a mix bucket, a wooden paddle, a scrub pad, gloves, paper towels, and a plastic spatula. R-Flex, which has a two-year shelf life, mixes as liquid and within 3-4 minutes becomes non-sagging, self-leveling putty. The mixture should be stirred with the wooden paddle. Working time is 7-9 minutes, and functional cure is 1.5 hours.
