GATES ANNOUNCES NEW POLYURETHANE BELT CATALOGUE

In its brand new Polyurethane belt catalogue, Gates presents its complete Polyurethane belt programme consisting of both linear and endless Synchro-Power® belts.  Besides the available range, the catalogue describes the various design and construction options, and offers technical product information.

The Polyurethane belt range contains 30 new product types, mainly developed for compact drives, heavy lifting and outdoor applications.  Amongst the innovative products are the Gates WR10 timing belts, especially designed for applications in a high humidity environment and with an optimised tooth shape.  Furthermore there are the HPL14 RSL timing belts, characterised by higher tensile strength and less elongation which makes them suitable to withstand high mechanical system demands. 

Gates also includes its special focus product, the BLACK FLAT belt, which provides the right solution for lifting and conveying applications.  These belts are characterised with low vibration, low elongation and high strength.  They are usually sold by the meter and secured in application by clamps or a FIX-FLAT.  This fastening system, available for all BLACK-FLAT types, effectively guarantees secure attachment of flat belts, in contrast to conventional clamp fastening plates.

Available in English and German, the Polyurethane belt catalogue is now available on an interactive CD-ROM and in a web optimised version at www.gates.com/europe/pu.  French and Italian will be available in the first quarter of 2013.  With the new product range, Gates enhances its expertise in polyurethane belts and offers its customers a wider range of belts from a single source.
