Textile conveyor belts are the most commonly used.
They are made up of several layers of rubberized fabrics, covered by layers of rubber of the desired thickness and quality depending on the work to be carried out and the type of material to be transported.

The fabric is made up of the warp and the weft. The warp is responsible for supporting longitudinal tensile stresses, while the weft supports transverse stresses due to troughing and those produced by impacts. Supporting only secondary stresses, the frame must not be excessively rigid. Therefore, the warp has a higher strength than the weft, generally.

It is capable of withstanding longitudinal and transverse tensile stresses.
