Strong Belts Reduce Maintenance Costs

July 2, 2021
Gates offers thermoplastic polyurethane belts in two sizes.

Two new thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) belts in 8 mm and 14 mm profiles are stronger, more durable, quieter, safer to operate and require less maintenance than other alternatives, including alternative rubber belts, roller chains and steel cables.

The high-strength, reinforced steel the Gates Parabolic Pitch (GPP) 14-RSL has the highest break strength of any 14mm pitch TPU belt on the market. The GPP belts are equipped with nylon fabric on the tooth sides for high abrasion resistance and quieter operation, and the optional low-temperature construction provides an operating range from minus 30 degrees up to 50 degrees Celsius.
