2GT vs GT2.

The Belts, Pulleys, and Idlers that we are selling are of the 2GT standard NOT the GT2 standard and are genuine gates manufactured products.

2GT and GT2 are two different standards and are not compatible, but they are equivalent in performance.

When we initially listed the Belts/ Pulleys and Idlers we erroneously named them GT2 when in fact they are 2GT - we apologise for any confusion caused.

Many Belts, Pulleys and Idlers on the market are mislabeled as the GT2 standard when they are actually the 2GT standard.

Be assured that the Belts, Pulleys and Idlers that we are selling are high-quality genuine Gates manufactured parts that conform to the 2GT standard.

Gates Powergrip® 2GT Belts.

Fibreglass tensile cords provide high strength, excellent flex life and high resistance to elongation.

Neoprene is bonded to the tensile cords for protection against dust, grease and moisture. And also prevents frictional wear in cases where the idlers are used on the back of the belt.

The Neoprene teeth are moulded integrally with the neoprene backing. The teeth are precisely formed and spaced to assure smooth meshing with the pulley grooves minimising tooth interference with the mating pulley. This greatly increases belt life by preventing tooth wear and distortion. Audible drive noise is also minimised.

Tough nylon fabric with a low coefficient of friction covers the wearing surfaces of the belt. It protects the tooth surfaces and provides a durable wear surface.

Gates 2GT Toothed Pulleys

A highly recommended accompaniment to the Gates Powergrip® 2GT Belts. Available in a selection of sizes.

These come in standard 5mm bore, with grub dual grub screw holes. Suitable for attaching to most NEMA17 motors with a 5mm shaft.

Gates 2GT Toothed & Smooth Idlers

A highly recommended accompaniment to the Gates Powergrip® 2GT Belts. Available in a selection of sizes.

Toothed Idlers used appropriately in place of bearings prevent damage to the belts teeth by allowing it to glide freely and gently cups its teeth as it traverses around the curve.

Smooth Idlers are purposely designed, with correct flanges and clearance to ensure a belt retains a constant tension throughout its entire stroke in a way bearings could never match.
