Continental’s North American Automotive Aftermarket business introduced heavy-duty coolant tubes that stay rust-free longer than the original equipment parts, according to the company.

“Continental heavy-duty coolant tubes exceed the performance of original equipment options,” said Continental’s Dave Wenger, marketing manager for the North American automotive aftermarket business.  “Additionally, using our coolant tubes combats most common causes of failure in OE parts such as corrosion and heat flakes on painted tubes that encourage rust formation, and the reuse of old tubes that can crack during reinstallation.”

The technology company offers the heavy-duty coolant tubes in nine part numbers that cover 38 different product applications that match the OEM requirements.
