UniMatch Banded V-belts are available in Classical sections B, C and D, and feature the same premium constructions as the individual belt, bonded together with a fabric-neoprene top band. These belts are often used on vertical shafts and where belt vibration, whipping and turn-over must be minimized.


To obtain the total list price, multiply the list price per rib by the total number of ribs per band. In-between lengths of the B, C and D sections are available as are lengths to 600 inches in the B and C sections on special order. Consult Jason/Megadyne Customer Service. These belts conform to ARPM Engineering Standard IP-20.


Banded Classical V-belts are specified by a number followed by a forward slash which indicates banded construction and number of ribs and a letter/number combination indicating the base belt part number Example: 8/C90

It is common practice for some belt suppliers to fill orders for banded V-belts by supplying separate bands (belts) that add up to the total number of ribs requested. Normal policy for Jason/Megadyne is to supply a one-piece banded V-belt unless otherwise requested. Example: Order is for one belt with 8 ribs. Some suppliers will send two belts with 4 ribs each. Jason/Megadyne will ship as ordered, one belt with 8 ribs, unless otherwise specified.
