Super HC® Molded Notch Belts

Constructed with Gates proprietary construction, this belt has a superior combination of flex and load carrying capacity, as well as transmitting more horsepower than the classical cross sections in the same amount of drive space.

Suitable for all industrial applications, particularly where space, weight and horsepower capacity are critical.


  • Notches molded into the belt during manufacturing make this belt well suited for drives with smaller diameter sheaves.

  • Belt Edge is machined for even sheave groove contact resulting in less slip and wear.

  • Flex-Bonded Cords are strongly bonded to the body of the belt resulting in equal load distribution and the absorption of bending stress without cord deterioration.

  • Patented Ethylene Material construction provides -60°F to +250°F temperature range to resist belt cracking.  (Patent US 6616558)

  • Meets RMA oil and heat resistant standards.

  • Meets RMA static conductivity requirements.
