LIQUI MOLY Gear Oil Additive

Published:  18 March, 2019

It is a common problem, especially with older cars: The gearbox is notchy and changing gears becomes more difficult. Often the reason for this is wear. LIQUI MOLY Gear Oil Additive reduces friction and wear and facilitates changing gears. The active principle is its solid lubricant and it does not contain any chemical agents. This makes Gear Oil Additive a good choice also for very old cars, because there are no chemicals which may harm their sealing or other parts of the gearbox.

Fit2Go TPMS, a global licensee for Michelin, has launched  two new  tyre pressure products. Michelin TPMS and Michelin Tyre Pressure Checker are both designed to protect  against poor tyre maintenance.

At the same time the firm is launching Michelin Tyre Pressure Checker – a new and affordable option for motorists who may already have TPMS as OE. The system works by fitting an NFC-enabled pressure sensor to replace the current  valve caps on each tyre. To get a pressure reading, the driver simply holds a  pressure checker against the sensor to determine the  precise pressure, accurate to within 1.5 psi. There are no batteries in the sensors,  and the pressure checker device can be recharged via the supplied USB cable. The new systems are suitable for use on tyres with pressures up to 86 psi and come with a 12-month warranty.

Lighting the way

Published:  19 December, 2018

In addition, legislation was introduced in 2012 so new vehicles produced after then would use D3 and D4 references, which do not contain mercury. Ring stocks a comprehensive range of Xenon HIDs, including the new D5 reference.

Bringing windscreen repair into the 21st century

Published:  04 December, 2018

Screen Care Repairs have developed the world’s first NON UV windscreen repair resin. Safe2Bond resins work in exactly the same way as traditional UV curing resin except they cure using 470nm which is the safe part of the light spectrum. Most windscreen repair kits vary little in their basic design and performance. A bridge is required to hold the injector in position over the pre drilled damage to allow resin to be injected, replacing the air inside the break, and then cured using an ultra violet light. Since the 1970s it has become more apparent in all industries that using UV light sources in the workplace is undesirable and alternatives have been sought in most applications. The Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010 brought into UK law the Artificial Optical Radiation 2006/25/EC Directive. This imposes legal duties on employers to protect workers who may be at risk from artificial UV light exposure. Even low level UV light sources such as windscreen repair lights should be avoided if possible. The Safe2Bond NON UV resins have been developed in house by Screen Care Repairs based on the success of the company’s NON UV glass bonding adhesives. This eliminates the need for UV windscreen repair light sources.

Whiter headlights offer upgrade opportunity

Published:  27 November, 2018

The new Ring Xenon5000 headlight bulbs match the colour of LED daytime running lamps without HID or LED technology. Modern vehicle lighting often incorporates low energy, very white LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). These emit an attractive white light, with a very high colour temperature –around 6000K. As most cars still have standard halogen headlights, this can lead to an inconsistent look between the white DRLs and the headlights, which will emit a yellow-tinted light, with a colour temperature of around 2700K. Ring’s latest performance headlight bulb –the Xenon5000–is different. This bulb emits a very white light, with a colour temperature of around 5000K. As well as giving an attractive appearance, the whiter light improves reflections from road signs and markings, and the bulbs put up to 50% more light on the road than a standard halogen headlight, making night time driving safer and more comfortable.The new bulbs come in popular H1, H4, H7 and H11 and references. They require no wiring changes and are ECE Reg 37 approved, making them road legal. The H4, H7 and H11bulbs have a stylish silver tip, to blend into the headlamp unit and give a high spec finish. A countertop display unit is also available.

Rejuvenating makeover for older engines

Published:  05 November, 2018

LIQUI MOLY Injection Cleaner frees the engine from deposits and restores its original performance. It is simply poured into the fuel tank. Every time the engine is running, the cleaning ingredients, together with the gasoline, get into the injection system and disintegrate the encrustations. The dissolved dirt is burnt in the engine and emitted together with the exhaust gases. The combustion chamber becomes clean again. In the event of tough dirt it can become necessary to use a can of Injection Cleaner for several refuelling processes in a row. Injection Cleaner can also be used preventively: One can every 2,000 kilometers ensures that new deposits cannot form in the first place.

NGK - New MAF and MAP sensors catalogue

Published:  01 October, 2018

Ignition specialist NGK Spark Plugs (UK) Ltd has released a new catalogue detailing its range of NTK Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensors and Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensors. Full details of the range and applications of 87 MAF sensors and 69 MAP sensors – which were launched last September – are featured in the 2018/2019 publication. For maximum efficiency in engine operation and to ensure effective exhaust gas treatment, the engine control unit (ECU) needs to precisely regulate the air-fuel ratio. MAF and MAP sensors are essential elements in this process. Both provide the ECU with a signal needed to calculate the amount of air aspirated by the engine.
