Kapton Drive Belts – Spring, 2018

Galibier Design - Kapton Belts

Kapton belts are now available through us.

  • The price is $85.00
  • These belts are 46″ in circumference, 3/8″ wide, and .003″ thick.
  • These belts are seamless (no splice)

Suppliers of Seamless Kapton Belts:

If you require a belt with different dimensions from our standard belt, some of these suppliers may be able to produce them for you in smaller quantities.

In order to produce an endless (spliceless) Kapton belt, they are “spun” on a mandrel, and because of setup costs, purchasing in quantities of one or two will be significantly higher than our pricing for the standard size belts provided by us.

Feel free to contact us.

Making Your Own Belts:

Links to suppliers of Mylar have expired, and we have removed them. If you’d like to fabricate your own spliced belt, search for either:

  • For holographic Mylar belts, search for band supplies.
  • 1/2″ recording tape or transparent 1/2″ recording tape leader.
  • Search for “recording supplies” for both tape and splicing blocks.

Splicing Tips:

Stephen Robinson put together a nice description of how to splice tape without the use of a splicing block. Since it was created in PowerPoint, we’ve converted it to PDF format.  click here to download the pdf.
