HANOVER, Germany (Feb. 11, 2011)—ContTech A.G. is launching a range of blue timing belts, which do not use carbon black or other oil-based materials.
ContiTech has developed the eco-belts for environmentally compatible industrial applications. As the first manufacturer anywhere in the world, it has brought a wrapped V-belt to market, composed primarily of natural raw materials.
The polymer is mainly natural rubber. Although the belt contains absolutely no carbon black, new constituents enable it to comply with the conductivity requirements to ISO 1813.
