Poly Chain® ADV™

Introducing the strongest synchronous belt on the market. 

The perfect solution for reducing weight and metal component costs on huge drives. The latest Poly Chain® belt system is a problem solver for high-torque applications with limited space constraints.

Poly Chain ADV Cutaway

Skinny is the new strong:

  • 15% stronger than Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belts
  • Narrowest & lightest industrial drives now possible
  • Replaces heavier chain sizes than ever before – and weighs up to 97% less

Lightweight isn’t the whole story when replacing roller chain:

  • No lubrication
  • No metal on metal wear
  • Reduced replacement interval – and a much more manageable replacement product!
  • No retensioning
  • Easier installation
  • No maintenance
  • And, oh yeah, dramatically reduced weight.

Replacing a huge V-belt? You’ll experience up to 48% less force on your bearings and enjoy energy savings to boot! Seriously, it’s time to lose the weight.
