I need to know if there is a product (glue) that will repair flat belts (rebond the laminations). the flat belts i refer to are the ones that are used to belt a tractor to a thresher, corn sheller, feed grinder, silo filler ect. I was told about a product called goat skin years ago, anyone know anything about this. sure could use some help, thanks.

Walt; The flat belts I dealt with, years ago, were laminated leather. We used a Jig to taper the ends at 22 degrees. Occasionally, the laminations would seperate. in such cases, we would cut the laminations apart, while being careful not to cut through them. We used a very strong, FLEXABLE, contact cement from 3M, If memory serves it was sold under the Weld-Bond brand name. It was specially formulated for the task of flat leather and rubber belt repair. You can check with 3M to see if it is still available, but this was many years ago, and flat belt repair is a dieing art, kinda' like auto body repairs done by leading. If this cement is still available, follow the instructions exactly, and use only in well ventilated areas, as the compounds in it are EXTREMELY strong and EXTREMELY flammable. The vapors are very harmful if inhaled, and explosive if they build up in the air. So be very careful when using this type of cement. Hope this helps.
