Dayco launches new HK belt


The Dayco range encompasses timing belts and kits, timing/water pump kits, chain kits, belt-in-oil kits and all the auxiliary drive related belts and components necessary to help technicians tackle any power transmission related challenge.


Highlighting just two of these products – High Tenacity and the just released, HK belt – demonstrates how Dayco is developing the technology to improve the performance of individual components and subsequently the drive system as a whole, and then applying these developments to provide the aftermarket solutions.

Dayco High Tenacity
With the growth in the number of vehicles that are fitted with High Tenacity (HT) timing belts as the original equipment (OE) fitment, the trade is becoming increasingly familiar with the ‘white’ timing belt. Although technicians may not initially be aware, irrespective of the marque to which they are fitted, all OE HT belts are manufactured by Dayco.

It is Dayco that developed the twin spiralled glass-fibre cord technology, which is wound into the core of these belts to give them their incredible tensional strength and the patented PTFE/cotton fabric coating on their teeth, that reduces friction and pulley wear and gives the HT belt, its instantly recognisable appearance. Therefore, the only genuine like-for-like aftermarket replacement is a Dayco HT timing belt kit!

The peace-of-mind provided by fitting an HT timing belt/water pump kit can be further enhanced as technicians that fit these kits can extend the existing two-year warranty on the kit by another year and therefore provide their customers with a three-year warranty.

The Long Life + 1 year warranty is a perfect example of how Dayco technology provides a ‘real world’ competitive advantage over other brands. It also gives the motorist a level of protection that cannot often be matched, even by the franchised dealer.

Dayco HK
Just as the constant evolution of engine design led to the development of new materials that are able to guarantee higher performance levels, like those used in the manufacture of Dayco HT belts, so recent advances that Dayco has made for its OE customers have raised the bar still higher.

Dayco HK belts encompass the highest level of technological development and feature a new tooth lining fabric and weave that incorporates aramid fibres. This combination achieves extremely high wear performance and greater adaptability to tooth geometry, which makes them particularly effective for high-stress transmission systems.

These belts are now making their appearance in the aftermarket and are included in specific timing belt and water pump kit applications, with the HK suffix in their marking.

The combination of guaranteed OE quality products, relevant technical expertise and product support, such as the Long Life +1 year warranty, makes Dayco the first choice for discerning professionals.
