Carlisle Gold Ribbon Cog-Belts are now made of EPDM. Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer is a synthetic rubber with outstanding properties. EPDM is durable, heat resistant, static conductive and resistant to hardening and glazing.
EPDM Gold Ribbon Cog-Belts are specially designed for optimum performance. They feature a 60% broader operating temperature range (-50°F to +250°F). Gold Ribbon is smoother running and the belt side walls reduce vibration for extended component life. The new cog profile reduces bending stress for increased performance on small diameter pulleys.
The unique construction of Gold Ribbon Cog-Belts combine the superior flexing of precision molded cogs with the tenacious gripping power of raw-edge sidewalls to provide higher energy efficiency, increased power ratings and longer belt life. Gold Ribbon Cog-Belts are proudly made in the U.S.A. Belts are matched to ChekMate tolerances and backed by Carlisle’s Ironclad Guarantee.
