Applications - Automotive - Timing Belts

Timing Belts / Boots / Floor Mats / Gaskets / Hose And Duct / O-Rings / Seals / Tires


Automotive timing belts are used to synchronize the engine and run the accesories such as air conditioning. These materials must be able to withstand the high under hood temperatures and remain flexible under high dynamic loads. Abrasion resistance is also critical and wear against the pulleys can shorten the lifespan of ordinary elastomers.

ZETPOL, with it's excellent toughness and dynamic strength has the best balance of properties of any automotive elastomer.
