    Super HC® PowerBand® 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.

    • Aramid tensile cords combine limited stretch with extraordinary strength and durability that is pound-for-pound stronger than steel. Flex-bonded cords are strongly secured to the body of the belt for equal load distribution of bending stress without cord deterioration.
    • Distinctive green backing provides protection with machined sidewalls that provide even sheave groove contact for smooth operation, less slip and reduced wear.
    • Patented Ethylene compound and optimized notches molded into the belt during manufacturing increase flexibility for compatibility with small diameter sheaves.
    • Tested to transmit an average of 50% more horsepower than standard Super HC® Molded Notch belts. Available on demand in Matched sets (not V80® program eligible).
    • Meets ARPM/RMA IP-3-2 oil and heat resistant standards and IP-3-3 static conductivity requirements. REACH and RoHS 2 compliant.

    Because your Super HC® PowerBand® belt can handle it. Gates® Super HC® Powerband® belts are engineered for drives where single belts vibrate, turn over, or jump off the pulleys, and work best for operations subjected to pulsating loads. The Powerband® technology consists of several V-belts joined together by a permanent, high strength tie band, thus providing more powerful, tougher performance than all the belts taken separately.

    Features and Benefits

    • Flex-Bonded tensile cords are strongly bonded to the body of the belt resulting in equal load distribution and the absorption of bending stress without cord deterioration.
    • Flex-Weave® cover is a patented fabric construction for longer life, providing extended protection to the belt core from oil, dirt and heat.
    • Concave sidewalls provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave-groove for equal loading and uniform wear.
    • Gates Curves provide full contact with pulley grooves for uniform loading of cords, uniform wear and increased belt life.
    • The Tie Band assures high lateral rigidity, guiding the belt in a straight line and preventing it from coming off the drive.
    • Strong band controls belt-to-belt distance and prevents sideways bending.
    • Super HC® PowerBand® is available in SPB, SPC, 3V(9J), 5V(15J) and 8V(25J) sections.


    Super HC® Powerband® belts are designed for high stability and smooth running on the toughest drives, with compact construction to save you drive space and weight thanks to the high transmission efficiency and superior material construction.
