The Flexco® BR™ fastener offers longer service life in demanding, higher- tension applications and is an excellent replacement for vulcanized splicing in a wide range of industries.
Designed for high strength synthetic carcass belting, the fastener is installed with a staggered pattern of rivets to ensure maximum grip on the belt fibers. Working between these fibers without severing them, the strength of the belt is left intact. The specially-shaped head of each pilot nail works with the installation tool’s anvil plate to “self-set” the rivets.
The same hammer blows that drive and set the rivets also tightly compress the fastener plates for the strongest possible splice. The broad width and heavy gauge
of the plates give extended wear life. These plates compress uniformly and are specially coined so there are no high spots or edges to hang up.
