Tread Vs. No Tread. An Argument Against Plain Lagging.

Plain Rubber Pulley Lagging is a product that exists purely because grooves used to be hand-cut to create a diamond pattern - so historically it was a cost-saver.

The problem with Plain Pulley Lagging is that there is no situation where a Conveyor Belt should be allowed to drift on a Pulley. The lack of grooves means that traction can be lost easily with only a thin film of moisture or particles.

We always recommend a product with a tread pattern, but we have this product available should a client or mine be unable to consider changing.
