What thickness of belt and textile components do you supply?

Marathon is a name that is known and respected for the supply of high temperature fabrics for different and demanding applications across multiple industries.  In more recent years, Marathon Belting has established itself in the glass industry, producing textile solutions suitable for processing delicate and high-quality glass and crystal products.

Supply arrangements do vary – check what your approved supplier can specifically provide

Marathon high temperature textiles and conveyor belting are currently available in thicknesses ranging from 1.5 mm to
8 mm thickness, but there is no restriction on what thickness could be made should a specific application require a predetermined width.

Experience confirms that a 6 mm thickness has really become ‘the common standard’ across the glass industry.

Lower thickness belts are available for lighter and more delicate glass items.

Thicker 8 mm belts are recommended where heavier items are to be transported, or where a higher level of durability is required.
