Power Transmission Belt Cord

For Stronger Belts that Excel in Tough Operating Environments

Meeting the Needs of an Increasingly Dynamic Cord Market

Smaller, hotter engine compartments; the need for oil resistance; new start-stop systems that can increase stress on belts – these are the evolving challenges facing the automotive belt market.
