Gates launches new Extra Service Micro-V® XF belt range

Next to the Micro-V® XF programme for passenger cars and light-duty commercial vehicles, Gates also launches a complete range of new Extra Service Micro-V® XF multi-ribbed belts for trucks, buses and tractors.  In addition, Gates has extended its range of Extra Service DriveAlign® tensioners.

Gates Extra Service Micro-V® XF multi-ribbed belts are recommended for high-speed, small-diameter applications requiring increased power transmission.  These high-performance OE equivalent belts are the perfect choice for serpentine drives and other heavy-duty ribbed applications.  Their new, improved construction ensures a longer belt life and excellent performance in all conditions.

Gates also announces an extension to its range of Extra Service DriveAlign® tensioners.  These high-quality products are built to endure the rigours of today’s heavy-duty, fleet and off-road equipment.  In fact, in laboratory tests, when tested under extreme peak-to-peak vibration and contamination tests, Gates DriveAlign® heavy-duty tensioners lasted up to three times longer than competitive aftermarket tensioners.

Gates Extra Service Micro-V® XF multi-ribbed belts together with Extra Service DriveAlign® tensioners offer the heavy-duty market all the necessary components for high-performance and durable accessory drives.  The new Gates Heavy-Duty catalogue is multilingual and contains information in English, French, German, Dutch and Spanish, about belts, tensioners, hoses and fuel caps for trucks, buses and tractors.
