Continental Variflex Belts

Timing Belt

Continental manufactures a variety of Poly-V belts for wraparound drives with small pulley diameters. Such Continental Variflex Z belts are especially fast and agile while producing excellent power transmission with minimal running noise. Here we take a closer look at the four main Continental Poly-V belt designs.

CONTI-V MULTIRIB

This Poly-V belt features enhanced running smoothness and is specifically designed for high gear ratios and high belt speeds. This ContiTech Z belt is also ideal for small pulley diameters as well as back-tension rollers. Each of these Variflex belts can be operated in tropical climates and have a temperature resistance of between minus-30 up to 80 degrees Celsius. They are suitable for reverse flexing and reverse tensioning idlers, are dust-proof and have been designed to be moderately oil resistant.

The ribs are made of a synthetic rubber and feature an embedding compound, polyester tension member and a Polyamide cover fabric. The antistatic rating is in accordance with ISO 1813 and the construction is compliant with quality standard specification DIN 7867.

CONTI-V MULTIRIB POWER

The Power Conti-V Variflex belt features a low-stretch tensile member which enables excellent power transmission even under extremely high loads. The temperature resistance ranges between minus 30 degrees and 80 degrees Celsius, with the excellent running smoothness not affected by heavy load weights.

Moderately oil resistant and suitable for use in tropical climates, these Continental Z belts are dust-proof, with the tension member made of Aramid fibres and the ribs made of synthetic rubber with an embedding compound as well as a Polyamide cover fabric. The Antistatic is in accordance with ISO 1813 and the general usage is compliant with the DIN 7867 trading standard.

CONTI-V MULTIRIB ELAST     

This Elast Poly-V belt is built specifically for drives featuring fixed centre distances without a separate tensioner. It is ideal for use with fixed wheelbases and is suitable for reverse flexing, features enhanced running smoothness and can be operated in tropical climates. The Elast ContiTech Variflex Z belts are temperature resistant between minus-30 degrees and 80 degrees Celsius. They are also moderately oil resistant and dust-proof.

The synthetic rubber ribs feature an embedding compound and the tension member is Polyester and the cover fabric is Polyamide. The antistatic is compliant with ISO 1813 and the general usage with DIN 7867.

CONTI-V MULTIRIB DUAL

This special double-sided poly-V belt is best suited to large transmission ratios and high belt speeds. They are also suitable for small pulley diameters and reverse flexing and reverse tensioning idlers. These Continental Variflex Z belts have identical power transmission on both sides and feature Continental’s signature enhanced running smoothness. They are temperature resistant up to 80 degrees Celsius and down to minus-30. They are also dust-proof, moderately oil resistant and suitable for use in tropical climates.

The ribs are made from synthetic rubber with an embedding compound and they feature a Polyester tension member. Antistatic is in accordance with ISO 1813 and the Conti-V Multi-rib Dual belt is compliant with the DIN 7867 standard.
