ACDelco is one of the leading American automotive spare parts brands. In order to further establish itself firmly in the Middle East market, it has launched a slew of new commercial vehicles products which include heavy-duty maintenance-free batteries, metal wiper blades and oil products.
The ACDelco heavy-duty maintenance-free batteries have a higher reserve capacity and are benefited by âFull Frame Technologyâ, with increased resistance to outside impact and vibration, the re-introduced product helps to provide better road safety.
Speaking about the new products, Mohammed Al Fayyad, Customer Care and Aftersales Director for General Motors, said, âWith the significant addition of new and enhanced products, we are affirming our commitment to staying at the forefront of the market and offering our customers a diverse product portfolio they can trust.â
He further added, âFor instance, most heavy-duty batteries in commercial applications are exposed and installed outside of the engine room, so they need to be able to endure extreme conditions. Specially designed materials have been added to ACDelco heavy-duty maintenance-free batteries to ensure they resist vibration and potential corrosion. The same practical thinking was also applied to the rest of our commercial vehicle product line.â
ACDelco says that the batteries are made up of a variety of materials which include – 1) a polypropylene case with a reinforced design precisely tailored to support the battery elements. This is an exceptionally strong material which is able to withstand shocks and vibrations from the road. 2) Centered Cast-on Plate Straps which are stronger than thinner gas-burned conventional connectors which reduce the lever action movement resulting from road shock. 3) A double lid that prevents contamination and also adds to the strength and rigidity of the battery. It also includes permanent flame arresters to prevent an accidental explosion from external spark or flame and a built-in hydrometer for faster checking. These batteries come with a 12-month warranty.
Other ACDelcoâs products include oils and metal wiper blades. The new lubricants, oils and fluids are specially formulated and help to protect vehicles against harsh weather conditions and heavy duty commercial use in the region, whereas the metal wiper blades are equipped with the latest technology and aerodynamic design for a smoother and quieter operation. With strong corrosion resistance, the wipersâ durability is complemented by acryl spray painting over layers of electro deposition coating and electro zinc painting on a galvanized steel body.
