The CONTI SYNCHROCHAIN CARBON is a polyurethane timing belt with carbon tensile member from ContiTech. The belt is very wear-resistant and transmits high powers extremely reliable, especially when a high force is applied. The heart of the belt is the carbon tensile member. This feature in combination with hard teeth made of polyurethane reduces the risk of tooth skipping significantly. The CONTI SYNCHROCHAIN CARBON is virtually maintenance free, which helps to reduce costs in the area of maintenance and replacement. Due to its higher efficiency and quieter operating performance, and since lubrication and re-tensioning is not necessary, the belt offers many advantages compared to a chain drive.
