Hexagonal belts finds application in the drives where several pulleys in the same plane are to be driven in the clockwise and anti-clockwise direction simultaneously. The polyester tension cord placed at the centre of the construction provides the belt extreme flexibility and low stretch properties. It is because of this positioning of the cord that these belts are not subjected to any other forces as in the case of normal V-belts. These are also used in rice mils. However off late these belts are rapidly finding application in industrial drives.
