Gates Predator® belts are the most aggressive V-belts ever made for shock-loaded applications. Predator belts have aramid
tensile cord reinforcement for extreme strength, and feature a treated fabric cover for superior abrasion resistance.
The truncated Gates Micro-V® Belt outperform other V-ribbed belts and thanks to increased flexibility,
reduced heat buildup, debris tolerance in the sheave, and the ability to operate at extra high speeds on smaller diameter
Two more advantages of the truncated are: (1) the belt does not bottom in the sheave, and (2) the belt can better tolerate
debris in the sheave groove. They are extremely smooth running and highly resistant to oil, heat and other adverse conditions.
Gates Metric Power™ belts are designed for OEM quality replacement on imported, speed-sensitive
machinery typically used in the textile, packaging, conveyor, food processing and machine tool industries. Made with Gates
exclusive EPDM construction, Metric Power belts can withstand a higher threshold of heat and offer superior protection against
hardening, cracking and wear.
Used on drives with little or no take-up, or as an emergency belt replacement.
Belting is sold on reels in standard V-Belt cross sections. Ends are spliced with fasteners that require special
assembly tools. Always use the correct fasteners with the correct belt type and cross section.
Nu-T-Link*, a new, high performance spliced belt, is also available for use as emergency belting, and
for drives where conditions are detrimental to rubber belts.
Multi-Speed belts have a distinct shape. Multi-Speed belt top widths are usually greater than their
thickness. This permits a greater range of speed ratios than standard belts. usually cogged or notched on the underside,
Multi-Speed belts are specified for equipment which require changes in driveN speed during operation.
Multi-Speed belts are specified by Top Width, Outside Circumference, and the required Groove Angle.
The groove angle can be measured from the drive pulleys.

Synchronous Belts - Gates Corporation
Synchronous Belts Gates has the total synchronous belt drive solution for your
demanding applications: Poly Chain® GT® for high performance and life cycle value in high-torque drive applications and PowerGrip®
GT®2 for high-speed, high-horsepower drives and applications requiring accurate synchronization.
Gates new patented Poly Chain GT Carbon belt is the world’s only use of carbon fiber in a dynamic
application. Poly Chain GT Carbon belt drives provide exceptionally high power transmission strength, flexibility and durability—matching
the capacity of roller chain drives width-for-width in most pitch sizes.
Synchro-Power belts have endless urethane construction that provides higher strength than welded
urethane belts and is ideal for use in power transmission and high-performance positioning applications.
Gates Eliminator™ belt is designed to replace an RPP belt of the same width and comparable
length. No sprocket change is required and the Eliminator belt will last a minimum of two times longer. Guaranteed –
or we will refund its cost.
Select the proper belt/sprocket combinations for maximum drive performance, efficiency and service
Gates Micro-V® or V-Ribbed Belts
Gates Micro-V® Belts outperform other V-ribbed belts because they are truncated(shorter). This
shorter profile gives the new Micro-V® Belts increased flexibility, reduced heat buildup and allows
them to operate at extra high speeds on smaller diameter sheaves.
Specially designed to replace original equipment belts on extra heavy applications such as machine tools, compressors,
pumping equipment and other industrial equipment requiring V-ribbed belts.
Two more advantages of the truncated are:
The belt does not bottom in the sheave
The belt can better tolerate debris in the sheave groove. They are extremely smooth running and highly resistant
to oil, heat and other adverse conditions.
Specially designed to replace original equipment belts on extra heavy applications such as machine tools,
compressors, pumping equipment and other industrial equipment requiring V-ribbed belts.
Exclusive Gates truncated belt design offers up to 80% higher horsepower capacity than Rubber Manufacturer’s Association
Increased flexibility and reduced heat buildup permit extra high speeds on smaller diameter sheaves.
Highly resistant to oil, heat and other adverse conditions.
Less sensitive to debris in sheave groove.
Meets or exceeds Rubber Manufacturer’s Association standards for static conductivity.
