Through material analysis, Smithers can conduct adhesion and abrasion resistance testing. By benchmarking materials and products, we can create an objective, reproducible, data-based foundation to compare rubber conveyor belt constructions, compositions, performance properties, reinforcements’ characteristics and other properties.

Smithers US and European laboratories are also equipped to conduct a variety of chemical analyses procedures used for product development, compound deformulation / formulation, service life prediction, quality assurance, conveyor belt failure analysis, and forensic investigation among others.

Smithers can test to a range of industry standards for conveyor belts. For conveyor belts used in food processing and production, we can also support you with relevant migration testing for food contact materials.
