    • DuPont Food Innovations > The Challenge > The Solution > Cases > Why DuPont Plastic conveyor belts from DuPont The food industry secret: Delrin® Delrin is a tough, lightweight, durable, wear-resistant, low friction, low noise and ® high performance acetal resin solution for modern conveyor systems. It offers enhan- ced quality and performance, uncompromising reliability and greater design freedom than metal or other plastic solutions. Bottling conveyor chains and belts of Delrin ® need less maintenance than chains and belts of other materials. With a lower overall system cost, less energy consumption and longer service life, conveyor chains using Delrin components remain clean, safe and more hygienic versus ® metal alternatives.

    • DuPont Food Innovations The problem with metal> The Challenge> The Solution> Cases> Why DuPont Traditionally, metal has been used for conveyor belts because of its strength. However, Get in touch by phone*: metal is not without its problems. Working environments are noisy. Metal must be lubricated often, and even despite this, parts wear down due to frequent friction. Tel. 0800 – 367 668 38 Metal must also cleaned with a special soap and a lot of water, which is not very http://dupont.com/food-contact environmentally friendly and slows production. More Information about DuPont solutions for eco-friendly- packaging on http://dupont.com/plastic-conveyor-beltfood.dupont.com Page 2
    • DuPont Food Innovations The Solution> The Challenge> The Solution> Cases> Why DuPont Delrin®: The plastic alternative to metal Get in touch by phone*: DuPont not only provides different grades of Delrin with internal and external ® Tel. 0800 – 367 668 38 lubrication to manufacturers of conveyor belts, but collaborates in R&D to achieve http://dupont.com/food-contact specific properties. In some cases, the resin is reinforced with Kevlar or supplemented with other substrates to make it x-ray detectable. Delrin compounded with a silicone oil concentrate from DuPont, meets requirements ® More Information for low friction, wear resistance, high strength, fatigue endurance, dimensional about DuPont solutions stability and consistent molding productivity and is ideal for molding flat-top conveyor for eco-friendly- chains and plastic conveyor belts. Three grades of conveyor flights with coefficients of packaging on friction ranging from 0.18 to 0.12 are available. http://dupont.com/plastic-conveyor-belt Advantages include: - Production flexibility: The injection molding process used for components of Delrin ® is much simpler and more cost effective than the manufacture of steel chains. - Low friction: in most applications, conveyors can run smoothly with reduced soap and water lubrication or even without lubrication at all. - Improved productivity due to lower maintenance: Delrin conveyor systems need less ® maintenance and are subjected to fewer downtimes. - Less tipping, wear, noise: Low friction reduces the risk of product tipping, cuts conveyor component wear and holds down noise. - Permanent lubricity: The lubricant is added with Delrin during the compounding ® process. - Durability: With the superior fatigue strength of Delrin , the chains withstand repeated ® „jerk loads“ produced when conveyors start with product already on the line. - Resists harsh chemicals: Delrin is resistant to typical cleaning solutions and other ® agents used to wash down conveyor lines. - Modular design makes optimized plant layouts possible; conveyor sizes can be designed to match precise line capacity specifications. - Environmentally friendly with low or no water usage and elimination of soap typically used with metal.food.dupont.com Page 3
    • DuPont Food Innovations Plastic conveyor belts case studies> The Challenge> The Solution> Cases> Why DuPont ® Delrin the backbone of success Get in touch by phone*: The use of DuPont acetal resin helped Flexlink to develop a generic conveyor chain Tel. 0800 – 367 668 38 design that is both cost-effective and that can be easily adapted to global production volume. The conveyor chain systems made with Delrin provide a great layout freedom ® http://dupont.com/food-contact and can be quickly and easily assembled using ordinary hand tools. The conveyor systems are also lighter and therefore cheaper to transport and mount than metal chains. More Information about DuPont solutions Delrin was chosen for its excellent tensile strength that can withstand a maximum ® for eco-friendly- of 6,000 Newtons and has a permissible working tension of 1,250 Newtons. It is also a packaging on lubricated grade, designed for low-friction and high-wear resistance. It also http://dupont.com/plastic-conveyor-belt demonstrates a significant reduction of noise.food.dupont.com Page 4
