Over 2x the life of standard belts

When you require extra strength and support from your belt look no further than Flat-Flex® XT®. Flat-Flex XT’s unique smaller spaces increase the amount of belt joints across the width of the belt making the belt stronger. Flat-Flex XT’s unique design enables superior distribution of product weight across the width of the belt, reducing belt fatigue and increasing the life of the belt.
