Tortilla Press Belts

Why we're different...

Durable tortilla press belts and dependable service are what you need. At Taconic, that’s exactly what you get.

With our high performance nonstick belts, you’ll watch your belt changeovers go down while your productivity goes up. Let us help keep your production lines running smoothly.

R&D Driven by Innovation: Our brilliant engineering staff is constantly searching for ways to improve our current product line up while developing innovative, application specific, products which solve issues commonly found with competitive materials.

An example of this can be seen in the creation of our A1139, tortilla specific, material. This material was a by-product of research conducted on competitive products plagued with grease and compression forces problems. The outcome was an industry leading, wear and grease resistive, material at a competitive price point.

Thanks to our engineering staff, we pride ourselves in offering the best, most advanced, tortilla press belt materials on the market.

 Quality Control/Testing: Each coated master roll goes through a rigorous series of testing to ensure consistent quality while you, the end user, receive the most accurate data available for that product. Tensile strength, tear strength, dielectric strength and adhesion are just some of the test methods we use to guarantee each and every roll of material is up to as-advertised standards.

Customer Service: Selling product to a customer in need is easy, but what comes after that? For many, the answer is apparently “not much”. Taconic’s customer service staff is dedicated to maintaining one hundred percent customer satisfaction. Whether it’s during the sale, immediately after purchase or several years down the road, our customer service staff will be there to answer any questions or address concerns that may arise.
