As the market leader in fabrics for timing-belt applications, our dedicated specialist teams make Heathcoat Fabrics’ products and service a step above competitors. Our deep knowledge of transmission-belting applications has allowed us to create fabrics for next-generation timing belts, belt-in-oil applications and high-performance accessory drive belts.

Our Synchrotec brand represents the widest available range of woven fabrics that use treatments compatible to CR, HNBR, and EPDM rubbers. Using exotic fibres and treatments, we can tailor our fabrics to benefit customers’ individual requirements. Synchrotec fabrics also contribute to a reduction in the environmental impacts of vehicles through improved fuel economy leading to lower emissions and reduced noise pollution.

Helping manufacturers reduce environmental impact

  • Reducing friction for increased fuel efficiency and reduced emissions
  • Reducing noise, improving the driving experience and reducing environmental noise pollution
  • Reducing belt wear for longer life and cost of ownership savings
  • Replacing chains for high efficiency performance in high temperature oil
  • Aqueous enhanced rubber adhesion chemistry
