Product Description

The ribbed belt combines the high flexibility of flat belts with the high performance of V-belts. The V-shaped parallel ribs are made from a wear resistant rubber compound. The high strength tension cord is designed for the many applications of the ribbed belt. It is embedded in a rubber adhesive mixture and covers the entire width of the ribbed belt. Fibre reinforced, wear resistant rubber compounds ensure quiet operation, oil and heat resistance and a long belt life.

  • High efficiency
  • Very good dynamic power transmission capability
  • Good coefficient of friction and high performance
  • Low vibration and noise
  • Withstands shock loads and short-term overload
  • High belt speeds possible.

The small minimum pulley diameters permit drives with high-speed ratios as well as small drive volume requirements. Ribbed belts are well suited for use with back bend idlers.
