Cotton fibres have a naturally high absorbency level which still out-performs man-made fibres for coping with moist, oily, high fat/grease content dough mixtures.
Polycotton yarn mixes give good abrasion resistance, offering improved belt life, usually doubling the run life compared to a 100% cotton belt.
The combination of cotton with nylon adds extra strength, further improving the run life.
Different types of yarn combinations are used depending on the operational life, level of performance required from the belts and the consistency of the dough mixtures. Arville belts are made predominantly from natural yarns, using a high proportion of cotton, which is a fibre that is proven to be effective in extracting biscuit dough from the moulding roller. We have continued to improve technical performance by developing belts where cotton is mixed with other man-made fibres to increase their operational life and effectiveness with different dough mixtures.
