      Continental Expands Product Portfolio to Include New Commercial Vehicle Drive Belts

      • 40 new multi V-belt types for Mercedes-Benz, MAN and DAF commercial vehicles
      • Addition of further types for Volvo, Scania, Renault and Iveco commercial vehicles planned for fall 2019

      Hanover, May 2019. Technology company Continental is expanding its range of drive belts for the commercial vehicle aftermarket. More than 40 multi V-belts for the auxiliary drive have been 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.

      Operational reliability in buses and trucks

      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. “Mechanics can therefore ensure the level of operational reliability in buses and trucks that millions of people rely on every day,” says Continental product manager Robert Franz. Continental offers registered workshops a 5-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. “Our aim is to simplify workshops’ everyday operations and offer drive products for a manufacturer’s entire vehicle line-up from a single source – ranging from light delivery trucks through to tractor units for long-haul transport operations.
