Black and White

At RPI there are no shades of grey when it comes to our belting! Dedicated molds ensure there are no Zebras at RPI!

RPI White Nitrile belts are built using dedicated molds, leaving a prestine white belt with no black or grey cleats!

RPI cleated White Nitrile belts are ideal for food applications that need a proven solution. RPI White Nitrile belts meet FDA requirements and are USDA/MID approved for direct food contact.

For everyone who wants more, the RPI Phantom Cleats are the Cleats you never imagined you could have… 

Phantom cleats look like a regular cleat from a distance, but when you get close, you realize the cleat is cut into the top cover of the belt!

Phantom cleats are precisely cut into the top cover with our CNC operated Pregrind machine, Lucille.  Lucille ensures the Phantom cleat depth is exact and doesn’t go down to the fabric.

You’ve been asking for a MaxClimb pattern with Continuous center cleat…your wish has been granted!

We got the magic fairy wand out and went to town.  RPI can now make our MaxClimb pattern with two center cleat options.   At the same time, we had a mishap and turned Russ into a cat…it may be a few days before we get that spell reversed.

MaxClimb patterns are exceptional at containing product within the cleat pattern.  The wide pocket at the bottom of the cleat pattern keeps the material spread out evenly.
