Gates Releases 284 New Automotive Aftermarket Parts

Gates-284-New-Parts-300x154Gates Corp. has expanded its line of OE-quality automotive products with 284 new part numbers.

This release has new introductions across several product categories. One highlight includes a new power steering filter, which according to Gates, extends steering system life and helps to eliminate pump warranties. In addition, 11 new OE-exact fan pulley brackets, which cover more than 6 million VIO, are made with high-quality bearings and casting materials to provide the proper structure and support needed for the fan clutch. In addition, a new hose connector assortment with hard-to-find reducer and “Y” connector components, includes a range of premium automotive fittings with 17 components in total.

Gates expands product coverage with two additions to its growing hydraulics line. New 90-degree live swivel couplings for hydraulic applications are now available. Made for hydraulic equipment with complex twisting and turning components to prevent torsional forces from being transmitted to the hose, these long-lasting, trouble-free couplings mean fewer hose failures and less equipment downtime.

Gates also introduced 103 new MegaCrimp couplings with TuffCoat Xtreme Plating. The specialized coating exceeds SAE standards and offers unsurpassed protection against rust and corrosion that can damage a hydraulic system, according to Gates.

“Our history of innovation and continuous improvement is evident with every new product release. We are excited about our expansion across product lines and about continuing to introduce parts that exceed customer expectations,” said Scott Howat, director of marketing and product management for the North American Aftermarket, at Gates.
