The ITB Industrial Division is central to the technology research programme which has lead the Company to develop a number of new products with innovative characteristics and features for various industries and applications.

Belts for the Cardboard Industry

High tensile strength belts for use on single facers: these belts can be run at incredibly high speeds and still track perfectly, with almost no sideways movement.
Their treated surface prevents the adhesives used in the process from sticking to the belt.

Belts for the Leather Industry

Endless needled belts for leather ironers with precisely ground surface to guarantee an easy handling of the hides.
Silicone coated pressure belts for laminating, impregnating, finishing, dyeing and lacquering machines. Very thin but mechanically strong, these belts offer a firm grip of as well as an easy release of the processed leather and will not be damaged by solvents.


Temperature-resistant conveyor belts for the cooling tables of aluminium extrusions. The felted surface will not scratch the sensitive surface of the extrusions, and the chemically-treated inner belt surface will not slip on the rollers. Different styles available for the lower-temperature positions of the cooling table.

Spiral Mesh Belts for the Abrasive and Sandpaper Industry

Coated spiral mesh belts that ensure a precise distribution of the abrasive material on the paper substrate.
The result of a partnership with another company of the Heimbach Group, these belts have been key to solving technical issues that end users had been wrestling with for years.

Belts for the Flooring Industry

Silicone coated belts with a high resistance to pressure and excellent resilience for the production of linoleum flooring panels.
A real improvement over traditional woven belts that leave imprints on the panels.

Belts for the Rubber Industry

The endlessly woven base fabric with exceptional tensile strength and low elastic modulus of these coated belts allows them to be used instead of heavy and dangerous razor-edged steel belts on rubber vulcanizing calenders (rotocures).
An additional benefit is that their smooth coated surface leaves no marks on solidifying rubber compounds.

Belts for Coated Products

Silicone coated belts for automated coating lines. The fine machine grinding that results in a smooth and thoroughly even belt surface is ideal for keeping the fine layer of adhesive compound within the strictest of tolerances, thus enabling users to dramatically cut costs resulting from over or undercoating of their products.

Belts for the Steel Industry

Polyurethane-coated, impact-resistant aramid belts for wrapping metal laminates around mandrels. These belts offer a much longer service life than traditional PVC or silicone coated belts, which easily break when hit at high speed by sharp edged metal laminates.
Developed for use on heavy-duty wrappers for extra-wide laminates these belts will also improve the performance of smaller machines for standard and thinner laminates.

Belts and Sleeves for the Food Industry

Endless belts and sleeves to convey food products under heated cells or through baking ovens. Belts coated with high-hardness, FDA approved silicone for the die-cutting of confectionery.

Advanced Treated Fabrics for Hydrogen-based Energy Systems

In-house woven fabric with chemical treatment for use in the filtering units of hydrogen production, purification, extraction and compression systems. This fabric has replaced the traditional membranes and offers a much longer service life and better impurity retention properties.
