Hi Dags, not totally sure, but maybe the rust was caused by water being trapped under the conveyor belting, even just condensation, (of course it could have been acid, too). I would think that what you have done with the cold-gal is a good idea... possibly add a smear of grease to the surface, clean the rubber and dry it before replacing it. Check it more regularly, too.

Regards John.
