    PowerGrip® Timing Belts

    Gates® classical synchronous PowerGrip® Timing belts offer a maintenance-free, economical, and OE quality solution for your conventional timing drives such as chains and gears. Its application range extends from minimum drives (computer printers) to heavy-duty machinery (oil pumps, etc). The trapezoidal tooth profile makes this belt well suited for use in positioning applications.

    • Fiberglass tensile cord provides high strength, excellent flex life, and high resistance to elongation.
    • Neoprene body provides protection against grime, grease, oil, moisture, and other contaminants.
    • Nylon tooth facing provides a durable wear surface for long service life.


    Today's complex engines operate at higher temperatures and higher speeds, with more compact designs and increasing demand for engine efficiency. Gates® PowerGrip® timing belts are engineered for lighter, quieter, and more economical operations - without the need for maintenance or retensioning. Moreover, they operate with exceptional corrosion-resistance and won't stretch due to belt wear.
