How to extend belting shelf life?

Although there is no definitive shelf life for belting material, environmental conditions will affect belt covers. This includes light (UV radiation), ozone, temperature and humidity. It is best to limit these influences by storing belt material in opaque, non-deteriorating plastic in a temperature-controlled environment (15 - 25 °C / 60 - 75 °F). Uncovered materials may discolor or yellow over time, and there is the risk of affecting the materials' overall performance and service life.
