Megapower® timing belts are manufactured by a unique thermoset molding process.
The high-grade polyurethane gives excellent abrasion and tooth shear resistance, combined with a variety of high-grade steel cords, ensuring high-tensile strength. The result is a timing belt with excellent dimensional stability. Megapower® molded timing belts are manufactured to a tight tolerance range, which assures consistent length, width and thickness.
The combination of these factors result in Megapower® performing to the highest physical and chemical levels.
NOTE: Specially requested compounds and cords must be tested and approved on the application and must be approved by the requester.
Megapower® polyurethane belts are suitable for high-power, precision motion and control even in high-speed applications.
• Consistent dimensional stability
