The world’s first ribbed belt with a change indicator: optibelt RBK SCC – SECURED CHANGE CONTROL.
Every engine is affected by an individual range of factors: humidity, cleaning agents, heat and cold, to name just a few examples. At the same time, the ribbed belt now also plays an increasingly important role in today’s cars and vans. More and more auxiliary units, and therefore also more safety-related systems, are now driven with the help of the ribbed belt and its components.
With today’s quality products, made to the highest standards with materials such as EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer rubber), it is impossible to reliably check the actual wear and tear of a ribbed belt without the use of tools. This means that the wear limit can be exceeded without anyone noticing, and nothing can be done to prevent this.
The optibelt RBK SCC provides the solution: Red markings become visible on the ribbed side of the belt when the belt reaches the end of its service life. Optibelt recommends that you have the ribbed belt serviced and, if necessary, replaced.
This innovation was highly acclaimed at the “International Grand Prix for Automotive Innovation” at the EQUIP AUTO 2015 exhibition in Paris. The SCC belt received the Silver Trophy in the “Spare parts & aftermarket” category. The jury, comprising 60 journalists from specialist magazines, chose the winners from several hundred nominees.
The optibelt RBK SCC launches a completely new belt technology on the market. This is so special that industry specialists have honoured this belt with awards several times. We, especially our development team, are immensely proud of these awards, and rightly so:
