Belt Dressing

Gates does not recommend applying dressing to belt drives. While belt dressing may temporarily quiet a slipping V-belt drive, it only masks the real problem (i.e. low belt tension). If a belt is slipping, it should be re-tensioned.

Additional information on drive inspection and troubleshooting is available in the Belt Drive Preventive Maintenance & Safety Manual at
