Product # 84003840

Truflex® belts are engineered with superior length stability for minimal take-up requirements, perfect for all industrial, light-duty applications, including fractional horsepower (FHP) motors and applications using backside idlers.

  • Gates® Curves provide proper cord support and full contact with the sheave-groove for uniform loading, uniform wear, and increased belt life
  • The Flex-Weave® Cover is constructed for longer cover life, providing the belt’s core with extended protection from oil, dirt, and heat
  • Runs with smooth, quiet operation
  • Meets RMA oil and heat-resistant standards and static conductivity requirements
  • Note: Truflex belts are offered in cross sections 2L (0), 3L (1), 4L (2), 5L (3)
