Provides low friction and flame retardant capabilities for container conveying applications

Milwaukee, WI (USA) –- Designed for container conveying applications, Rexnord recently launched its new Rexnord Flame Retardant Low Friction (FRPLUS) Material for Rexnord MatTop Chain. Customers around the globe in the aluminum and steel can manufacturing industry will benefit from low friction; a flame retardant, self-extinguishing material design; reliable performance; and more.
Rexnord FRPLUS Material provides customers with:

  • Exclusive, self-extinguishing material — an exclusive offering from Rexnord, the material formulated to self-extinguish per the UL Standard 94 V-0 when the source of ignition or flame is removed.
  • Low-friction material — requires little or no external lubrication to maintain low friction between the containers and chain.
  • Engineered design for reliable and durable performance — offers stability in container flow and behavior during conveying; withstands chemicals and drawing fluids used in the manufacturing of cans; minimizes dusting; and our proven chain-sprocket interaction requires no take-ups while using a catenary sag to absorb chain wear and elongation.
  • Technical expertise — the combination of our material and chain design, and technical expertise, helps customers choose durable conveyor systems that guarantee optimal product handling.
