Download Spec Sheet

Pyrathane® 88A is an FDA 1680 and 2600 compliant polyester based polyurethane which is identical in appearance to our 83A Pyrathane®.  88A is extremely tough and durable, exhibiting high tensile strength as well as excellent abrasion resistance and flex life that compares to our 83A.  Our Pyrathane® 88A has been specifically selected for drive applications that require a higher load carrying capacity while continuing to provide a good long flex life.  Pyramid has over forty years of experience with a variety of polyurethanes and is pleased to offer this new 88A durometer material.

Belts of both flat and round cross section can be manufactured of the 88A material.

While the modulus of Pyrathane® 88A is higher than our standard 83A material, we recommend a similar initial stretch of approximately 10% which will provide increased drive if needed.  Higher or lower stretch percentages can be utilized to increase or decrease the final belt tension.  Moderate variations can be used with little effect on belt life.

When considering 88A for your application, and when an initial stretch 10% is utilized, other general information provided in our product brochure will be applicable.
