WIXON, Mich. — Tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMS) maker Hamaton Inc. is expanding the valve stem range for its configurable sensor U-Pro Hybrid 2.0 by adding a gun-metal grey finish to the line.
The popularity of gun-metal grey alloys for wheels is increasing rapidly, the company said, and its new valve is designed to match that wheel finish.
The new Gun Metal Grey Clamp-In valve possesses the same features and benefits as its alloy and black counterparts.
Among its features are:
• An anodized coating that prevents corrosion from chemicals and road salt in winter;
• A washer enables users to tighten the valve without scratching the alloy wheel surface; and
• A nut-over-cap feature allows users to remove/attach the nut while the cap is on, reducing the time it takes to fit a sensor to a wheel.
The gun-metal grey valve is available for pre-order, the Wixom-based subsidiary of China's Hamaton Automotive Technology Co. Ltd. said.
