The Gates Corporation recently announced the addition of 128 new part numbers covering late model vehicles to its line of OEM quality aftermarket products.

The product release includes the new PolarSeal II Clamp Assortment and PolarSeal II Male Flareless Assemblies for A/C repair.

“We are excited about the expansion of our aftermarket product lines, especially our new PolarSeal II offerings, which are coming out just in time for the busy A/C season,” said Tom Trojan, Gates product marketing manager.

In addition, Gates introduces the DriveAlign® HD Tensioner for DD Series engines installed in popular Freightliner and Western Star models, covering over 45,000 VIO. Fleet-tested to over 400,000 miles, the tensioner is an advanced, drop-in solution that lasts longer than the OE equivalent so fleet managers avoid unnecessary maintenance and lower their cost per mile, Gates says.

Gates' latest release also includes a set of professional-grade hose clamp pliers for easy radiator hose installation and repair and DEF Hotline SCR Hose Assemblies covering heavy-duty vehicles like Kenworth and Peterbilt.
