Texsteel™ Belts

The strength of steel in a lightweight belt

TexSteel™ is reinforced with aramid synthetic fibers to provide longer belt life under extreme conditions. It has greater rip, tear and impact resistance, and superior load support and durability. This leading-edge belt creates energy savings with its lightweight construction, and it cuts downtime with faster splicing versus steel cord belts.

Benefits & features


High tension capabilities

TexSteel’s superior strength capability allows for the conveyance of higher belt tension in a single ply reinforcement.

Limited take-up travel

Limited take-up travel

TexSteel’s low elongation characteristics (0.3%) make TexSteel™ the natural choice when available take-up space is limited. This allows for installation of lower cost take up systems.

High abuse resistance

High abuse resistance

In conjunction with Continental Select's high abuse resistance compounds, TexSteel™ offers greater rip, tear and impact resistance versus conventional multiply constructions.



TexSteel’s high strength yet lightweight construction reduces energy consumption.
