There is a problem of belt debris or belt wear dust contaminating the glass document platen, from wear of the belt surface texture of the rubber frictional belts used for document over-platen transports in copiers or scanners. This problem is reduced by using a more rounded texture belt surface, which has a reduced tendency for projections on the belt surface to fatigue and break off.
