Designed as an excellent alternative to roller chain drives and gear, Gates Polychain GT carbon belts are a new range of polyurethane synchronous belts with patented carbon tensile cord design suited for high torque, low speed drives.
Gates has pioneered the new belt design that incorporates a high fatigue-resisting carbon fibre cord into the belt made of a new polyurethane compound.
Polychain GT carbon fibre belts are extremely powerful synchronous belts and enable a maintenance-free, energy-saving and environment-friendly operation.
Key features of Gates Polychain GT carbon belts:
- Made from tough and lightweight polyurethane compound, which is chemically resistant and ensures optimum adhesion with the carbon tensile cords
- Carbon fibre reinforcement provides high strength and length stability with improved shock load, fatigue resistance and flexibility while reducing stretch
- Nylon fabric facing has a wear-resistant surface to protect the teeth while keeping frictional losses to a minimum
- Specially modified curvilinear tooth profile improves stress distribution and allows higher overall loading
