Lewis-Goetz to Display Solutions for Tire Manufacturing Industry at ITEC International

PITTSBURGH, August 23, 2016 – Lewis-Goetz, an ERIKS company, will exhibit its exclusive Blue Stripe Polypreme and New Era Blue conveyor belts, as well as a variety of hose, gasket, and valve products for the tire industry at booth #324 during the 2016 International Tire Exhibition & Conference. The event will take place from September 13–15, at the John S. Knight Center in Akron, Ohio.

The Blue Stripe Polypreme belt is an ideal solution for transfer and drive-belt applications for hot stock and water. Available in two- and three-ply polyester constructions, the Blue Stripe Polypreme belt is a durable alternative to older cotton belts, and eliminates excessive stretching and shrinkage, while providing an overall tension rating of up to 225 pounds per inch of width.

Designed for release applications involving hot, sticky rubber, the New Era Blue belt features a three-ply silicone construction that is rated up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The belt’s rough blue texture is specially manufactured for Lewis-Goetz and a proprietary heat curing process prevents the possibility of contamination during the tire manufacturing process.

Lewis-Goetz has been offering unrivaled know-how and peace of mind to some of the world’s largest tire manufacturers since 1978. With nearly 100 locations across North America, Lewis-Goetz provides on-site diagnostic and preventative services, 24/7 technical support, and fast delivery times to maximize a manufacturing plant’s productivity.
