The Art of Material Science

EuroGrip® Couplers build on Gates decades of innovation in material science. The composite technology includes Glass fiber cord to provide superior stability at high RPM. Fiber-loaded cured HNBR increases torque transmission, controls dampening characteristics, and provides durability for the life of the engine. The lubricated jacket reduces component wear and retains tooth integrity. All of this culminates in a high quality OE solution for precise automotive power transmission applications.

OE Quality for the Aftermarket

Our long-standing partnerships working with automotive OEMs on production vehicles enable us to produce aftermarket parts of superior quality, durability, and performance. Building upon Gates proven synchronous belt technology, our flexible EuroGrip® Couplers connect the drive pulley to the decoupler pulley on the alternator and air conditioning compressor, working to dampen engine vibration and increase performance, and ensuring a perfect fit every time.
