    Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ Belts

    Gates® Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ synchronous belts have a renowned industry reputation for high performance and huge cost savings in a range of applications, designed to handle longer center distances at high load-carrying capacities. Gates uses patented Carbon Fiber tensile cords for increased horsepower rating, compactness, and flexibility, while also allowing the use of backside idlers. When combined with Gates® Poly Chain® GT®2 sprockets, you'll have a lightweight, long-lasting, maintenance-free system that's more than a match for roller chain.

    • Durable polyurethane construction resists chemicals, oil, pollutants, and abrasion.
    • Fully operational in temperature extremes of -54°C to +85°C (-65°F to +185°F).
    • High power density with a lightweight, clean-running construction.

    A Reputation of Revolutionary Innovations.

    In 1917, John Gates invented the V-Belt and changed power transmission as the world knew it. Fast forward almost a century and Gates® Corporation took the industry by storm once again with our revolutionary Poly Chain® V-Belts. We saw the opportunity to create a maintenance-free, mess-free, high-power alternative to the costly, heavy, labor-intensive roller chain drives that were once the only option for heavy duty applications. Today, we continue to push the limits of power transmission possibilities with every Gates solution.
