    Super HC® V-Belts

    Combines the strength of a wrapped belt construction with the economies of a narrow section V-belt. Transmits more power in a given space and allows more compact drive design than classical section V-belts. In short, it offers you more power and considerably reduces the space needed. This significantly cuts the overall drive cost. Super HC™ V-belts also have exclusive Gates construction features for longer life on your drives.

    • Flex-Bonded cords are strongly forged to the belt body, resulting in equal load distribution, resistance to fatigue and shock loads, and the absorption of bending stress without cord deterioration.
    • Arched top, concave sidewalls and rounded corners provide uniform tensile loading and uniform pulley sidewall contact for excellent belt service and reduced pulley wear.
    • Recommended for use on all industrial heavy-duty, narrow section V-belt drives and particularly where space, weight and horsepower capacity are critical.
    • Up to 300% capacity increase over classical belts.
    • Meets ARPM/RMA IP-3-2 oil and heat resistant standards and IP-3-3 static conductivity requirements. REACH and RoHS 2 compliant.


    Gates® Super HC® combines the strength of wrapped belt construction with the ergonomics of a narrow section V-belt, allowing your Super HC® V-belt to transmit more power in up to 50% reduced space, with a design that's significantly more compact than classical section V-belts. This means more power, less space, and less overall drive costs in your operations.

    Features and Benefits

    • Notches molded into the belt during manufacturing increase flexibility, making this belt well suited for drives with smaller diameter sheaves.
    • The Flex-Weave® Cover is constructed for longer cover life, providing extended protection to the core of the belt from oil, dirt, and heat.
    • Gates Curves provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave groove for uniform loading, uniform wear, and increased belt life.
    • The vulcanized Flex-bonded tensile cords provide superior resistance to tensile and flexing forces, fatigue and shock loads.
    • Belt Edge is machined for even sheave groove contact resulting in smoother running, less slip, and wear.
    • The belt will not catch fire from heat buildup, even with severe slippage.
    • The Flex-Weave® oil and heat resistant cover protects the belt.
    • Gates® Super HC® belts are available in 3V, 5V, and 8V cross-sections.
