Corteco is a leading international spare parts supplier for the Independent Automotive Aftermarket. Thanks to the comprehensive development know-how of the Freudenberg Group, Corteco offers a comprehensive product portfolio of vibration-control components and repair kits in OEM quality for more than 27,500 vehicle models.
The new Corteco Pulley Catalogue 2017/2018 offers a detailed overview of our full product portfolio of over 255 pulleys for cars and commercial vehicles, together with 50 repair kits containing the respective pulley with the matching screws and washers. Our product range of 255 pulleys includes 50 start-stop pulleys.
The advantages of the new catalogue, at a glance:
In the new Pulley Catalogue, Corteco has deliberately placed an emphasis on start-stop, because over half of the cars currently being produced are equipped with a start-stop system, reducing the level of CO2 emissions and also lowering fuel consumption - and the trend is rising. The expectation is that by 2022 start-stop systems will be fitted as standard in over 82% of all vehicles sold in Western Europe.
A conventional pulley has to withstand an average of 50,000 to 70,000 start procedures. A start-stop pulley, by contrast, has to cope with 500,000 to 700,000 starts.
The development of engine mounts or pulleys capable of withstanding ten times the number of starts without failing represents a massive challenge. However, intensive research, development and testing has made it possible to solve this problem. Counterfeit products are not subject to any of these three stages, and accordingly do not comply with OE requirements.
The Corteco start-stop range
Corteco offers over 20,000 items covering vibration control, seals and filtration. Of these, over 1,410 articles are specifically designed for start-stop applications.
The Corteco product range already includes:
• 50 start-stop pulleys (for over 4.5 million vehicles)
• 11 start-stop pulley kits, including pulley and the matching bolt
Worldwide specialists rely on this technique.
And with very good reason.
something that our engineers at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies have come close to achieving with the LEVITEX crankshaft seal.
