With a cogged V-belt, the inside of the belt is notched for gripping. Sometimes, there is an X designation in the belt specification. Variable speed V-belts and V-ribbed belts are wider than standard belts. As their name suggests, they are designed for variable-speed drives. Anti-static V-belts belts help prevent buildup of static electricity. Truly endless belts are not spliced, but are instead manufactured as one closed loop. Open-ended belts come in a roll and may be cut and spliced to desired length and number of teeth. V-belts and V-ribbed belts may be banded together for multi-sheave drives. The number of bands or ribs should be specified for products with multiple bands. Belt materials exhibit different properties for strength, speed rating, power transmission capability, and weight. Materials of construction may include neoprene, polyurethane, rubber, and urethane.
 SomeV-belts and V-ribbed belts are reinforced. Typically, the reinforcement takes the form of cords or bands running circumferentially along the belt near the top or at the pitch line. V-belts and V-ribbed belts that are made of fiberglass, polyester, Timing Belt Manufacturers in China and steel are also available.
