Kevlar is a synthetic fibre with high tensile strength and excellent resistance to extreme temperatures. It is used in various products such as clothes, PPE, bulletproof vests and V belts.

Kevlar belts are a top choice for withstanding the force of an idler pulley system. In the system, a third pulley pushes along the outer side of the belt to create more tension and transfer more force. 

Because Kevlar belts are some of the strongest on the market, they are a larger investment than your traditional V belt. However, you get value for money since they have a long lifespan. It’s important to note that Kevlar belts may need some extra lubrication to prevent sticking and keep everything running smoothly.

  • High tensile strength
  • Non extensibility
  • High resistance to shock loads
  • High resistance to wear and tear
  • Reduced slippage while clutching
  • High resistance to repeated reverse flexing

This durable belt is used in heavy-duty machinery such as:

  • Lawn mowers
  • Tillers
  • Snow throwers
  • Industrial shredders

Kevlar belts function differently to raw edge and cogged V belts, so research which belt is needed for your machine. Our experts are happy to advise on the best solution for you.
