PowerBand V-belts are multiple Gates V-belts that are joined with a single backing. PowerBand V-belts provide the following advantages (compared to single V-belts):
  • They are more latterly rigid, making them more stable on drives with pulsating or heavy shock loads. This makes them less likely to flip over or jump off a drive.
  • The single belt design promotes uniform loading.

PowerBand V-belts can carry the same load as an equivalent number of single V-belts. For more information on the Gates family of PowerBands belts, visit
