The ribbed belt combines the high flexibility of flat belts with the high performance of V-belts. The V-shaped parallel ribs are made from a wear-resistant rubber compound. The high strength tension cord is designed for the many applications of the ribbed belt. It is embedded in a rubber adhesive mixture and covers the entire width of the ribbed belt. Fiber reinforced, wear resistant rubber compounds ensure quiet operation along with being oil and heat resistance ensuring long belt life.
The ALPHA flex timing belt is manufactured without interruption of the tension member; this means an endless spirally wound steel tension cord is used. This optimum combination of extremely strong tension cord and polyurethane makes these timing belts suitable for universal application in areas where high performance must be transmitted synchronously in systems with large centre distances.
It is recommended that the tensioner and relay rollers are replaced at the same time as the timing belt to avoiding voiding any warranty.
The MARATHON 1 has an excellent tension behaviour with low-stretch.
That, together with the section accuracy, means it is quiet running to a high degree when it comes to rotating alternators, water pumps or air conditioning compressors.
Due to its maintenance-free high performance capability, continuous use of the MARATHON 1 is particularly cost-effective.
