Aramid Tensile Members
They are also referred to as Kevlar or Flexten.
Construction feature which provides superior strength to prevent distortion of the tensile section.
Belts with a fabric cover over the belt body. They are also referred to as wrapped or covered belts.
Belts with no fabric cover. They are also referred to as cut edge, raw edge or machined edge.
Belts manufactured without rubber material being applied to the outside surface of the banded belt. They are also known as low friction, dry cover or clutching cover.
The main part of any belt that generally surrounds, supports and protects the load-carrying tensile cords.
Mixtures of rubber, plastics and other materials which are used to form the body of the belt.
Concave Sides(U.S. Patent 1813698)
Construction which allows belt to make uniform contact with sheave groove, thus distrubuting wear uniformly.
A systems which defines specific sheave and belt dimensions, previously known as the pitch system(diameter or length) for classical belts and sheaves.
Strong chemical bond between rubber body and tensile cord. Allows for absorption of bending stress and long service life. Avoids premature failure due to cord separation.
Patented nylon and cotton blended fabric consturction which increases flexibility and reduces cover stress providing longer cover life and longer protection of belt core.
Belts with this feature compensate for effects that occur when a v-belt bends in a sheave. Curved belts feature concave sides, radius relief and arched tops.
Hi-Power II Belt
Commonly referred to as classical, wedge or conventional.
1) A non-powered pulley, sheave, sprocket or wheel around and classical section V-Belts in metric sizes.
Metric Power Belt
V-Belts in metric sizes.
Commonly referred to as v-ribbed, multi-rib and Poly-V.
Molded Notch Belts
Often referred to as cogged, notched or cut notch belts. Notches reduce bending stress.
Commonly referred to as variable speed, wide range variable speed, adjustable speed and variable pitch.
Oil and Heat Resistance(OHR)
Property of the belt which allows it to withsatnd the affects of oil, heat, sunlight, ozone, weather and aging.
Poly Chain GT Belt
A premium, high torque, polyurethane, synchronous belt with aramid tensile cord.
A polyurethane v-belt which is often used in high precision dirves, such as machine tools and small appliances.
Polyflex JB Belt
Two or more joined polyurethane v-belts.
Two or more belts joined together at the top of the belt. It is also referred to as a joined or banded belt.
Power Grip Belt
Are several synchronouss such as timing, HTD, GT and twin power.
A line of premium fractional horsepower belts.
PowerGrip HTD/GT Belt
High torque drive system with a curvilinear tooth profile. These belts are often referred to as Gilmer, timing, positive or synchronous belts. They are sometimes referred to, in error, as cogged or notched belts.
The most agressive PowerBand V-Belt made for shockloaded applications. Predator belt construction is available in narrow and classical profiles.
Construction which minimizes corner wear and works with concave sides to assure proper support of the belt.
Static Conductive Belts
Specially constructed for potentially hazardous (explosive) environments. They are often referred to as static safe or static resistant.
Super HC/Super HC Molded Notch
A drive system commonly known as narrow or deep wedge.
Superior Length Stability
Assures V-Belts require less retensioning and take-up during their service.
Generic term used for power transmission drive systems utilizing toothed belts in mesh with grooved pulleys or sprockets. These systems are also referred to as Gilmer or timing.
V-Belts typically use special polyester cords, with aramid used in some specialty belts, such as Poer Cable and PoweRated Belts. Synchronous belts generally have fiberglass cords, except for the ramid fiber used in Poly Chain GT belts. Steel is rarely used, exept in some special synchronous belts.
Specially woven and treated nylon fabric that reduces friction of the belt in the sprocket and resists abrasion and other tooth damage.
For molded notch calssical section or conventional belts.
For Fractional Horsepower (FHP) light duty belts.
For V-Belt matching system that meets RMA tolerances. Any V-80 belt will match and perform with any other V-80 belt of the same size and type.
