Ordinary belts may not be resistant to oil and high temperature, while oil resistance V-Belts can. Generally, oil or chemicals and any belt drive system will seriously affect the service life and the operating characteristics of the system. The chemical substance or oil involved in the concentration, the time and type of contact,
The type of belt used and environmental conditions, such as heat and humidity, all contribute to affecting performance and deterioration.
When the belt is exposed to oil and/or the environment, two effects may occur
chemical. The most obvious is swelling or increase
The size of the cross section so that it no longer fits
The pulley or pulley groove is correct. Less obvious at leisure
What was observed was a decrease in the original physical properties, including adhesion between the belt components.
Importantly, the life of the belt will be greatly shortened.
The above effects may be caused by various
Chemicals, especially oils, acids and solvents.
No single synthetic rubber can resist all these. Some compounds may be excellent for a chemical substance, but not good for a chemical substance.
Therefore, all stock belts produced by Goodyear are reasonably resistant to oil and chemical corrosion. The same goes for our high temperature resistance V-Belts.
