What is a Multi-V Nylon Pulley?

•    A Multi-V Nylon Pulley is also known as a Multi-Grooved Pulley or Multi Rib Pulley
•    This nylon pulley features multiple V-shaped grooves or channels on the pulley face, hence the name "Multi-V."
•    The V-shaped grooves provide increased surface area for the belt to contact the pulley.
•    Allowing the belt to sit securely and transmit rotational force efficiently, minimizing slippage and  maximizing power transfer.
•    Proper tension is crucial for the performance and longevity of the Multi-V belt.


What are the Advantages?

•    Run on smaller diameter pulleys
•    Transmit high torque loads at high speeds.
•    Run quietly without vibration.
•    The more compact the design and lighter the weight of drive components, the lower the drive inertia


Multi-V Nylon Pulley - What is the Value?

•    For OEM applications using an H, J, or K pitch
•    Molded Nylon 6/12 has a tensile strength of 22,000 psi, able to handle shock loads, high speed, and  continuous use.
•    Nylon is an engineered, 33% glass-reinforced material, offering many advantages over other pulley    materials. Nylon is half the weight of aluminum and one-seventh the weight of steel.                                          Less inertia (less weight) means quicker starts, stops, and reverse actions.  
•    Multi V nylon pulleys cost, on average, 25-50% less than aluminum pulleys in volume quantities.
