De-glazing Belts and Mats

De-glazing Belts and Mats

We offer a wide range of de-glazing belts and mats which remove glaze from the base of the ware after dipping.

These belts and mats are available coated in three different qualities of material :-

  • sponge-rubber
  • flock
  • felt.

The belts can be manufactured to fit any de-glazing machines, whether standard or twin-running, with or without V-guides.

Sponge Rubber Belts

Sponge Rubber Belts

Our sponge-rubber de-glazing belts can be coated with a range of qualities of sponge-rubber of various density and porosity in any thickness.

We can offer belts to fit all standard machines, but we can also offer bespoke belts according to customers’ requirements.

Please note that it is important to fit, use and store sponge-rubber belts correctly.  Please refer to this downloadable pdf  which explains these procedures further.

The specifications of the different sponge-rubbers can be viewed in the “Knowledge Base” section of our web-site.

Flock Belts

Flock Belts

Flock Belts are becoming increasingly popular where only a small amount of glaze needs to be cleaned from the base of the ware.

The nylon filaments give a shallow, sharp and clean wipe and are especially popular with producers of tableware.

They are available in Grey and Black colour. The filaments on the Grey belts are 2.5mm long, whilst the filaments on the Black Belts are available in 1.3, 2.5 and 4.0 mm lengths.

De-glazing Mats

De-glazing Mats

De-glazing mats are available for customers who do not use a de-glazing machine. These can be produced in sponge-rubber or flock material and can be produced in any size that the customer requires.
