Poly Chain® GT® Carbon synchronous belts are the solution. 
  •  400% greater capacity than HTD belts
  • 5% energy savings over V-belts
  • 99% efficiency for life of the drive
  • Cut maintenance & downtime
  • Reduce weight and overhung loads
  • Over 120,000 possible drive combinations
  • Inert to most acids, chemicals and water

  • Width-for-width roller chain conversions
  • No stretch
  • No lubrication
  • No re-tensioning
  • Outlasts roller chain up to 4 to 1
  • Outlasts roller chain sprockets 10 to 1
  • Inside & backside idlers can be used 

Poly Chain® GT® Sprocket Range 
Unlike rubber synchronous belts the unique construction of Poly Chain® GT® Carbon belts allow them to easily cope with wet or washdown applications and environments. Stainless steel sprockets and bushings together with Poly Chain® GT® Carbon belts are the ideal wet drive solution.

Stainless Steel Sprockets & Bushes

If, for any reason, the Poly Chain® GT® Carbon belt drive system does not meet your expectations during the first 90 days, just return all components to your Gates distributor for a full refund *

* To qualify for the 90 day risk free guarantee, the belt drive system must use a new Poly Chain® GT® Carbon belt, Poly Chain® GT® sprockets and bushings. The drive must be designed using Gates design software and installed in partnership with Gates.


Gates engineers can help develop the best drive solution for your particular application and need.
