    Poly Chain® GT®2 Sprockets

    Genuine, strong, durable sprockets designed for use with high power density Gates® Poly Chain® Carbon™ Volt®, Poly Chain® GT®2, and Poly Chain® GT Carbon™ belts.

    • Smaller, narrower sprockets save shaft space, keep the load closer to bearing and extend life of reducer.
    • Poly Chain® GT®2 Sprockets keep overhung load below manufacturers' recommendation.
    • Precisely manufactured and statically balanced to ISO 1940 (1973) to class G16.


    With patented, carbon tensile cord design for high-torque, low-speed drives, Gates® engineers were the first in the world to incorporate a high fatigue-resisting carbon fiber tensile cord into the belt, which is made of a new polyurethane compound. Consequently, Poly Chain® GT® Carbon® quickly became the most powerful line of synchronous belts on the market, providing a maintenance-free, energy saving, and environmentally friendly operation, offering an excellent alternative to roller chain and gear drives.
