EPDM for resistance to weathering, oils, water, and some solvents
Cords bonded to the body for equal load distribution and reduced bending stress
Concave sidewalls for even distribution of wear
V80 matching program for precisely-matched sizes in varying belt types
Meets RMA oil and heat resistance standards and static conductivity requirements
This Gates Hi-Power II belt is a multipurpose power transmission V-belt for widespread applications. It is made of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer) rubber for resistance to weathering, oils, water, and some solvents. Its cords are bonded to the body are strongly bonded to the body of the belt for equal load distribution and reducing bending stress without deterioration of the cord. Its concave sidewalls provide cord support and full contact with the sheave groove for equal loading and uniform wear. Hi-Power II belts are part of Gates’ V80 matching system, which guarantees that all belts of the same type and size will be more precisely matched than the Rubber Manufacturers Association (RMA) and International Standards Organization (ISO) standards require. The result is even load distribution on multi-belt drives and better wear. This V-belt meets RMA oil and heat resistance standards and static conductivity requirements and is suitable for use in all industrial applications, including V-flat drives.
