ContiTech improves timing belt change sticker

Comments Email

HANNOVER, Germany (Feb. 10, 2014) — ContiTech Power Transmission Group has redesigned the sticker it supplies to service shops to record timing belt changes, improving adhesion and better protecting writing.

The sticker is now capable of adhering even in the engine compartment, ContiTech said, and is made out of a high-quality foil material, which the company said protects printing from moisture, soiling and premature fading.

In addition to the kilometer or mileage reading and timing belt date change, the new sticker also allows technicians to indicate which other components were replaced with check marks.

Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?

I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.

I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.

I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.

I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.

I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.
