    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.

    Application advantages you can count on.

    Our Poly Chain® GT® Carbon™ belt drives have immediate impact on your application, with proven success stories, performance and savings metrics from operations all over the world.

    energy savings over V-belts


    higher power ratings than previous constructions


    efficiency for life of the drive


    greater capacity than HTD® belts

    • Equivalent capacity to roller chain drives in the same width.
    • Easy, rust-free wash-down with Gates Stainless Steel hardware.
    • Fast drive conversion payback. Quieter than roller chain drives.
    • Lubrication, re-tensioning and maintenance free.

    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.
