High-performance materials made of rubber and plastic, intelligent materials, useful service apps: at the Hannover Messe 2014 ContiTech will present its future-oriented technological know-how for industrial applications based on material and procedural expertise stretching back over decades. Highlights include intelligent functional materials and polyurethane timing belt with carbon tensile member capable of withstanding the highest forces. The polyurethane timing belt is almost 5 meters long and 22 centimeters wide. This heavy-duty timing belt is designed for unusually high loads in major industrial machines. The carbon tensile member enables the transfer of extreme tensile forces and guarantees durability with maximum performance.
