Save More Than You Think

Run With Us. Poly Chain® GT® Carbon Belt Drives — Nothing Tougher

Roller chain is not your only option. Consider Poly Chain® GT® Carbon belt drive systems, offering numerous benefits over conventional chain drives and many gear systems:

  • When considering investment costs, belts last three times longer than chain, and the sprockets ten times longer. Total cost of ownership for a belt drive is significantly less than a chain drive.
  • No stretch, no lubrication and no metal-to-metal part wear deliver a low maintenance drive. Hours spent lubricating and retensioning can be refocused on more critical tasks.
  • Production is lost every time the drive is shut down. Less maintenance means less downtime.
  • The stronger-than-steel carbon fiber tensile cord construction gives the drive high horsepower carrying capacity and compactness.
  • The drive is impervious to washdown, resisting moisture, chemicals and abrasion.

Another benefit? These efficient, cost-saving belts are now available in Extended Lengths with 14mm profiles. Ideal for drives requiring longer center distance and high load carrying capacity, Poly Chain® GT® Carbon Extended Length belts are a lightweight alternative to heavy chain. They offer all the cost-saving benefits of the standard-size belts plus added weight reduction for less wear on bearings and motors. That's added value.
