    Poly Chain® Carbon™ Volt® Timing Belts

    The power you want, the safety you never had! Antistatic power transmission belts are a necessity in volatile environments, like those found in the energy, agriculture, and petrochemical industries. The Poly Chain® Carbon™ Volt® belt is the only belt in the market that provide an industry-leading solution that meets ISO 9563 standard for static conductivity over the full lifetime of the belt. Its patented static-conductive jacket construction transfers static electricity safely to carbon tensile cords, away from the driven side of the application - making it your safest and strongest option for applications in ATEX environments. Gates uses patented Carbon Fiber tensile cords for increased horsepower rating, compactness, and flexibility, while also allowing the use of backside. When combined with Gates Poly Chain® GT sprockets, you'll have a lightweight, long-lasting, maintenance-free system that's more than a match for roller chain.


    Gates® Poly Chain® Carbon™ Volt® Belts take everything we've put into our Poly Chain belts and makes them better. Carbon tensile cords and polyurethane construction superior provide strength and fatigue resistance, limiting stretch, and providing maximum flexibility. The patented curvilinear tooth profile provides exceptional power transmission capabilities. While the patented anti static jacket makes the belt ideal for volatile environments and is ATEX directive compliant.

    Features and Benefits

    • Static conductive (ISO 9563) and can as such be used in the conditions described in the directive 2014/34/EU- ATEX.
    • Chemically resistant polyurethane compound that ensures optimum adhesion with the carbon tensile cords.
    • Nylon fabric facing that acts as a wear resistant surface, protecting the teeth and keeping frictional losses to a minimum.
