Conti expands drive belt range for CV aftermarket

Continental has expanded its range of drive belts for the commercial vehicle aftermarket with more than 40 multi V-belts for the auxiliary drive being added.

These feature profile codes 4PK, 6PK, 8PK, 10 PK and 12PK – i.e. ranging from the narrow variant with four ribs to the widest with twelve. These are used, for example, in Mercedes-Benz, MAN and DAF buses and trucks. Continental’s new offering is aimed at independent commercial vehicle workshops, haulage companies with their own workshops and component wholesalers.

The new multi V-belts are made of fiber-reinforced synthetic rubber with a polyester tension member. Continental manufactures its drive belts for the aftermarket to the same quality standards as its original equipment products, which are specially designed to meet the requirements of modern commercial vehicle units. That means workshops operating in the aftermarket can enjoy the same proven quality as original equipment. Continental also offers registered workshops a five-year guarantee on the new products.

Further belts for Volvo, Scania, Renault and Iveco commercial vehicles are scheduled to be added to the range by the fall of this year.
