Classic C (7/8" top width) v-belts are exactly that, classic in design and application. The classic C belt is the most tried and true style of v-belt in the market. Originally designed to replace leather belts in a variety of industries including agriculture, rock crushers, mining and lawn & garden. C belts are not considered to be light duty belts and are designed with a 40° angle to "wedge" the belt into the groove of the pulley. The greater the load, the greater the wedging action. The manufacturing process combines a rubber compound with a polyester cord to increase strength and stability. Some of the 7/8" C classic v-belts are also available in Kevlar.
Conventional v-belt suitable for all standard industrial applications. Standard operating temperatures ranging from -1° F through 158° F.
