  • Belts from 1/8” to 1” after skiving
  • Pulley diameters from 5” to 42” (125 to 150 mm)
  • Low-profile, Scalloped Edge® design is conveyor component compatible
  • Hinged splice – easily separated to remove, extend, or clean belts
  • Rivet-attached for maximum resistance to pull out

How Flexco® Rivet Hinged Fasteners Work Rivet Hinged SR 

Designed for synthetic carcass belting as well as other styles of belt, Flexco® SR (Self-Setting Rivet) Fasteners utilize multiple rivet attachment. This provides maximum resistance to pull-out and allows the patented rivets to work between the carcass bers without severing them, leaving the entire belt carcass intact. It does not rely solely upon the carcass material to resist pull-out. Because the rivets are self-setting, fasteners are installed quickly from the top side of the belt.

Rivets are driven through the fastener plates and through the belt, passing between the carcass bers. The specially-shaped head of each pilot nail works in conjunction with the applicator tool’s anvil plate to set the rivets. The same hammer blows that set the rivets also compress the fastener plates into the belt cover. The broad width and heavy gauge of the plates give extended wear life. These plates compress uniformly and are specially coined so there are no high spots or edges to hang up.
