Gates invented the V-belt and continues
to be the worlds largest manufacturer
of power transmission belts offering a
broad range of heavy-duty, light-duty
and specialty belt drives
Run With Us for Long Life V-Belts
When used over time, belts fail due to excessive wear, stretching and heat cracks, leading to frequent replacement and costly downtime. Gates is innovating to keep your belts running longer.
We created a new, patented EPDM construction for molded notch V-belts.
EPDM (Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer) is a high-performance synthetic rubber compound known for ozone, heat and weather resistance. Gates V-belts made with this exclusive EPDM construction offer greater efficiency, saving you money and maintenance headaches.
Check out these benefits of EPDM molded notch V-belts:
Longer life at extreme temperatures
EPDM belts resist hardening to avoid cracking. They offer 70% broader temperature range (-60°F to +230°F) compared to other belts.
They meet RMA standards for oil and heat resistance as well as static conductivity.
Bandless, molded notch construction saves up to 3% on energy costs.
Specially engineered molded notch shape reduces bending.
Belts show improved flexibility for increased performance on small pulley diameters.
Precision machined belt side walls reduce vibration for extended component life.
Flex-bonded cords stay stable and resist stretch better than ever.
EPDM belts tolerate misalignment better than the competition.
All Gates molded-notch V-belts have been upgraded to their exclusive EPDM construction.
The worlds most trusted name in belts, hoses and hydraulics.
Gates Technological Advancement
Gates tensioners ensure proper performance on serpentine belt drives and reduce noise and vibration levels.
Gates asymmetrically dampening tensioners provide more energy absorbsion versus conventional symmetric damped tensioners.
Gates tensioners helps to prolongs life of other accessory drive components.
Systems Engineering & Technology
As our many worldwide OE partners have learned, Gates can enhance optimization efforts by getting involved early – right at the design stage. Gates’ approach is one of system engineering, to find the best solutions based on the highly interdependent nature of the individual components. Through the years, Gates has developed the engineering skills, including simulation programs and rig test methods, to engineer complete, integrated and highly functional systems
