Now also available in three special belt constructions:
- Poly Chain® GT Carbon™ High Temperatur
- Poly Chain® GT Carbon™ Hot Oil


Through providing you with precise drive solutions of unsurpassed quality and leading edge technology Gates brings you the ultimate in synchronous drive systems. Poly Chain® GT Carbon™ is Gates’ newest polyurethane synchronous belt with patented carbon tensile cord design also suited for high torque, low speed drives. The materials development engineers from Gates are the first to have incorporated a high fatigue-resisting carbon fibre tensile cord into the belt which is made of a new polyurethane compound. Consequently,
Poly Chain® GT Carbon™ is the most powerful synchronous belt in the market providing a maintenance-free, energy saving and environmentally friendly operation offering an excellent alternative to roller chain and gear drives.

Identification

Three part number on the back of the belt indicating pitch code, pitch length and width. Belt inside colour is blue.

Construction

• The basic belt consists of a newly developed tough, lightweight polyurethane compound which is chemically resistant and ensures optimum adhesion with the carbon tensile cords.
• The carbon fibre reinforcement provides high strength and length stability with improved shock load and fatigue resistance, while reducing stretch and increasing flexibility.
• The facing is a nylon fabric that acts as a wear resistant surface, protecting the teeth. It also helps keep frictional losses to a minimum.
• The special modified curvilinear tooth profile improves stress distribution and allows higher overall loading.

Advantages

• Extraordinary power capacity: at least 25% higher power ratings than Poly Chain® GT2 belts.
• Clean, quiet, compact, durable, maintenance-free, energy saving and environmentally friendly operation.
• Virtual constant belt tension over belt life.
• Ability to use back idlers.
• Designed to fit with current Poly Chain® GT pulleys.
• Suitable for temperatures from -54°C to +85°C.
• Wide application range: industrial equipment (mining, construction, food and beverage, wood, paper, pulp, textile), conveying equipment, lifting and handling equipment, agricultural and forestry equipment, machine tools, motorcycle rear wheel drives, bicycle drives … and many more.
