V belts are high-performance belts. They are often used in automobiles, trucks, and other high power equipment because they provide great traction, speed, bearing load, and long life. V belts can be made from a variety of materials. Let’s take a look at the more common V belts available.
- Kevlar V belts: Kevlar V belts are made from materials similar to that used by police and military units to protect members against injury. The material flexes easily without breaking, and is resistant to heat, oil, and gasoline drips. It’s often used to make belts for machines like lawn mowers, snow blowers, and other home equipment.
- Classic V belts: Classic V belts are made from a heavy grade rubber, neoprene, or another synthetic material. They offer flexibility and resistance to oils and heat.
- Cogged V belts: Cogged V belts have small teeth or grooves that fit over cogs. They offer better performance, less slippage, and better heat resistance that smooth-sided belts. They are made from synthetic materials.
- Wedge V belts: Wedge V belts offer higher horsepower in small spaces.
