Seal-a-meal in a dewar of liquid nitrogen,maybe.
The Imation guy got back to me and informed me that, as far as the
factory is concerned, there is no belt. They start with die-cut
doughnuts of a type of sheet polyurethane (proprietary treatment)
and feed them into a jig that "flips" and stretches them to shape.
He said that it was virtually impossible to do this manually.
So, if you've got a belt that holds its shape as a belt, it's
probably too far gone already.
