Family of Four From Gates
A new look, a new construction and a new family of four – major talking points to emerge from the latest generation of multi-ribbed belts for accessory belt drive systems, introduced by Gates.
Stronger associations with the Gates OE product range are clear and will become more prominent as the latest generation of the Micro-V® range is introduced throughout the European supply chain.
Some of the more striking OE associations will include:
- Same distinctive pattern on the reverse sides of most belts
- Belt textures that match the feel of Gates OE products
- Greater flexibility associated with OE design and construction
As one of the world’s largest manufacturers of belts and metal parts, Gates works closely with every major vehicle manufacturer. The OE range continues to be the benchmark for all aftermarket products and the new generation of Micro-V belts represents a natural evolution from that range.
OE materials and technologies
The quality of the EPDM rubber compounds used to manufacture Gates OE belts was instrumental in achieving greater crack-resistance and reliability under the most extreme temperature variations. Gates uses the same compounds and the same OE design technologies in the construction of the latest generation of Micro-V belts. Advanced tensile cord materials provide the necessary strength and durability.
