This disclosure relates a feed belt for use in an electrographic copier or printer. The feed belt is used to feed the top sheet off a stack of sheets. Certain tension is required in the feed belt in order to drive a mating rotating retard roller which prevents the feeding of more than one sheet at a time. This tension may not be maintained with a fabric reinforced belt. To impart the necessary stiffness and to maintain the critical tension, fiberglass tensioning members are used. The belt comprises two layers.
