Gates new Extra Service 90° curved silicone hose: Superior performance on heavy-duty applications

Gates has extended its heavy-duty range of cooling system components with the 90° curved silicone hose.  This high-temperature resistant curved hose functions perfectly as radiator, heater or other coolant transfer hose in poorly ventilated conditions.  

As an extension to the existing silicone hose range (straight silicone radiator and straight silicone heater hose), Gates launches the 90° curved silicone hose.  Its shape conforms to the cooling system configuration as often seen in today’s heavy-duty vehicles.  The advantages of this silicone hose are multiple: it guarantees and outstanding performance in high-temperature environments, offers high durability and low maintenance and is made of soft and flexible material, which exhibits excellent resistance to compression set.  

Gates Extra Service 90° curved silicone hose range is available in 19 references with arm lengths from 150 mm to 300 mm and inside diameters from 10 to 75 mm.  The hose has multiple layers of first grade silicone material.  The reinforcement is a 3 layer polyester knit unaffected by permeation of coolants and heat.  The extra thick and resilient tube, prevents cold water leaks and hardening under the effect of heat.  The cover is resistant to coolants, ozone, weathering, sunlight and extreme ambient temperatures.
