Gates® Hi-Power® PowerBand® V-Belt construction allows multiple belts to function as a single unit, with even load distribution and each strand fitting securely in the sheave groove. It offers a solution for drives where single belts vibrate, turn over or jump off the pulleys. They consist of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high strength tie band offering a tougher more stable solution compared to a single belt.
Flex-bonded tensile cords are vulcanized as one solid unit making the belt highly resistant to tensile and flexing forces, fatigue and shock loads.
Strong band controls belt-to-belt distance and prevents sideways bending.
Elastomeric compound protects the belt against heat, ozone and sunlight.
