Thickness of our steel metal belt

Dymco's steel metal belts are almost less than 1 mm thick.

Thickness 0.2mm and 0.3mm, they look very thin.
However, they are belt material.
In other words, they are tensile to stand repeated rotations.
We need a lot of force to bend 0.3mm -thick belt with our hands.

The picture below shows how the belt material bends by its own weight.
Thickness is , from the front, 0.05, 0.08, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, and 0.3mm.
Various thickness of steel metal belt

The front on is 0.05mm thick, thinner than human hair (0.07mm).
Yet it is spring type and looks arc.  This way steel metal belts are rigid.
