Gates Corp. Releases 255 New Automotive Aftermarket Parts

gates531Gates Corp., a global diversified manufacturer of industrial, automotive and heavy-duty aftermarket products, has added 255 new part numbers to its OE-quality automotive products line.

The product release includes six new heavy-duty water pumps for popular truck applications. The pumps are built using upgraded seals and bearings to handle heavy diesel loads, while precise face machining ensures a correct fit.

Gates adds a new size of Fiber Braid Lock-On Hose (5LOC), which is now available in 300-foot bulk reels and 50-foot packaging. According to Gates, this fiber braid reinforced hose is ideal for petroleum-based hydraulic oils, glycol antifreeze compounds, water, engine lubricating oils and air. It has an oil and mildew resistant cover, a 300-psi working pressure and meets specific performance requirements for fuel and B20 biodiesel fuel transfer applications up to 125 degrees Fahrenheit.

The product release includes a new line of Variable Valve Timing Solenoids that effectively restore the variable valve timing to proper operation and performance. The OE quality parts provide exact fit, easy installation and a practical solution to the failed operation of a VVT Solenoid, which prevents oil flow and pressure to an engine’s cam phaser.

Gates expands its RPM (Race, Performance, Muscle) line with 22 new RPM Micro-V belts for many popular supercharged applications as well as a new timing belt for the 1993-‘94 Nissan Maxima equipped with the 3.0L engine. Gates RPM Micro-V belts utilize multiple adhesion gum layers and nylon reinforcement in a patented EPDM compound, resisting heat and extending service life. The RPM timing belts use superior materials such as high-strength tensile cords, aramid-reinforced rubber compound and tough tooth fabric. They have shown to be stronger, last longer and be less susceptible to damage from heat and contamination compared to the OE and competitive timing belts.

“New product development continues to be a top priority as market needs constantly evolve,” said Jack Ramsey, Gates senior vice president, North American Automotive Aftermarket. “We are pleased to be able to offer products that address these needs on a steady, ongoing basis.”
