Since the beginning, Chemprene’ s marketing philosophy in our lightweight rubber conveyor belting product line has been to sell belting in master roll form and to sell it to distributors with slitting capability.  Over the years, this unwavering approach to market has produced a loyal and supportive worldwide belting distributor network for the sale of Chemprene belting products. Chemprene has been an innovative leader in the lightweight material handling industry for more than 60 years. We are a leading supplier of belting for food processing, package handling, and general industrial applications worldwide. In our 225,000 sq. ft. modern production facility, we offer the widest variety of coating processes and curing techniques of any belting manufacturer in the industry. We produce more styles and variations of rubber belting than any other belting manufacturer.  With over 2100 belting constructions, Chemprene provides value to our customers through innovation and product variation. Chemprene offers complete design capability and process control for every aspect of the development and manufacture of your product from concept through delivery. Chemprene established itself in the marketplace over 60 years ago by focusing on manufacturing military and government rubber coated fabric specifications. In the late 1950’s, Chemprene expanded from military into automotive and specialty diaphragm applications. The capabilities added by the development of our conveyor belting product line in the 1960’s made it possible for Chemprene to expand into many high quality, engineered applications which require product standards well above industry norms. Chemprene has developed a unique blend of capabilities throughout the years. We manufacture both single-ply and multi-ply belt constructions at our plant in Beacon, New York. Specifications range in thickness from .040″ to .400″. Chemprene produces both unsupported and fabric inserted materials. Our company offers a full range of rubber polymer mixing, liquid coating, calendering, and curing processes. Chemprene can calender and solvent coat materials to 72″ wide. In addition to solvent liquid coating, we offer a variety of environmentally friendly aqueous solution coating options. Chemprene produces a variety of uncured precision calendered materials in addition to our standard cured specifications. In our finishing area we can cure products with flat presses or rotocures, depending on what characteristics are required in the final product, to a width up to 72″ for most specifications.

Product Design

A large percentage of Chemprene’s products have been engineered to perform in customer specified or private brand applications. Many of these products have been designed and developed by Chemprene chemists in our prototype pilot lab. The pilot lab is for the ongoing innovation in product development. In this lab most manufacturing processes can be simulated and products can be developed economically on a smaller scale. Once a specification has been developed and approved by the customer, it is then released to manufacturing engineering and the material is scaled up to production quality.
