Why should I have Carbinite applied to my pulley?
All serpentine belt drives suffer from some amount of slippage. Sometimes the slippage problem is amplified by smaller diameter pulleys, limited belt-to-pulley contact areas, and high accessory loads. Carbinite’s unique textured coating provides optimal grip for serpentine belt systems, reducing or eliminating belt slippage. This set-up allows for more power to be transferred through the serpentine belt system. Our textured carbide coating, optimized for grip and belt life, is metallurgically bonded to your pulley and is guaranteed not to chip, flake, or peel.
  • You may see an improvement in your boost level.
  • Carbinite can eliminate the need for a 6-to-8 or 8-to-10 rib conversion.
  • In some cases, Carbinite can eliminate the need to go to a “cogged” set-up.
What pulleys can be coated with Carbinite?
Carbinite can be applied to most steel or aluminum pulleys for street cars, race cars, and high-performance marine pulleys (water pump and/or supercharger).

Carbinite can be applied to crank or harmonic balancer pulleys, although belt slip here is not usually an issue.
Carbinite can be applied to V-belt pulleys. This is not recommended since belt shred is a known problem.
