Banded Standard & Cogged V-Belts
These banded standard and cogged V-belts are two or more single V-belts that are fused together to create ribs in a V-belt with reinforced backing. Also called multi-groove or combination V-belts, their banded cover offers more stability than multiple, single V-belts, and provides additional protection against heat and oil. They are used in applications where multiple V-belts are needed but speed fluctuations, misalignment, and vibration might cause single belts to whip, turn over, or slide off the pulley. Cogged V-belts have grooves across the width of the belt and have an "X" designation. These banded standard and cogged V-belts are categorized by the dimensions of their cross section and features that impact performance. These category designations are set by the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM) to help with the exchange and replacement of V-belts.
