Tradesman smart Platen Static management
With our smart platen, there is a 1/8 inch layer of 30 durometer closed-cell foam
This isolates the belt from the machine ground , using our 3M belts static electricity builds up.
This will discharge thru your fingers for a little wake-up jolt if your the ground
Either you can spray some laundry static guard on the back of the belt OR
you can use Aluminum Tape which is a good replaceable wear surface.
