Urethane adds greater versatility to drive belts

Stretch belts for power transmission applications have to combine strength and durability with abrasion resistance and chemical resistance.

Thanks to a proprietary welding process, stretch belts for power transmission and conveying are now being manufactured by Dura-Belt, using extruded urethane cord supplied by Stevens Urethane, a division of JPS Elastomerics.

Urethane offers the best properties of both rubber and plastic in this application. It has the elongation and recovery products of rubber, and the chemical resistance of plastic.
