With a truncated rib design, the Gates Micro-V® multi ribbed v belt gives great performance at high speeds on small diameter v belt pulleys. This is a smoother running belt which provides a power handling increase of up to 80% higher than RMA requirements. The Gates Micro-V® v belt size range now features over 125 standard effective lengths, which cover a huge range of applications.
Gates Micro V® belt identification: Durable yellow marking shows the dimension and type.
- Flexibility, improved resistance to rib crack, and heat buildup are all improved due to truncated ribs.
- Excellent resistance to shock loads and fatigue is provided by the lower stretch & higher modulus polyester tensile members.
- Very high heat and oil resistance is offered by the elastomeric rubber compound..
