SynchroChain Belt Release

Continental Contitech SynchroChain press release.  Introduction of the SynchroChain metric timing belt as a direct replacement to the Gates® PolyChain GT® metric timing belt.

The CONTI SYNCHROCHAIN® - with its newly developed CTD timing belt tooth profile, original design and selected materials - ensures reliable power transmission for high torques and for high dynamic stressing. As the first drive belt of this high-performance class it permits reverse flexing in multi-pulley drives and is the optimum alternative to chain drives.

The newly developed CTD profile ensures faultless meshing and hence smooth running at high speeds. At the same time it prevents a jump-over at high torques. So the CONTI SYNCHROCHAIN® is well able to cope with a wide range of requirements. It is suitable for new drive designs and at the same time also compatible for use in existing systems.


  • oil-resistant and unaffected by tropical climates
  • designed for high dynamic stressing up to 40 m/s
  • maintenance-free
  • suitable for temperatures from -40 °C to 100 °C
  • withstands reverse flexing
  • very hard-wearing
