Gates, a leading global provider of application-specific
fluid power and power transmission solutions, has
introduced MEGASysâ„¢ MXTâ„¢ with XtraTuffâ„¢ Plus cover
(MXT-XTP), a universally applicable hydraulic hose,
featuring Gates’ patent-pending wire-braid technology.
MXT-XTP offers all the benefits of Gates’ industry-leading
MXT hose – compact size, light weight, flexibility and high
performance – with added durability from the company’s
proven, industry-leading XtraTuff Plus (XTP) cover.

“Gates is known for innovation driven by materials
science and process engineering expertise, and pairing
that with the voice-of-customer and an ability to
anticipate the needs of future applications sets us apart,”
said Mike Haen, vice president, industrial global product
line management. “MXT-XTP maintains the advantageous
performance of our popular MXT
hose line with the field-proven
XtraTuff Plus cover. We continue to
revitalize our premium MEGASys
hydraulics portfolio by providing
solutions for our customers’ most challenging
applications.”

Gates’ lightweight, high-performance MXT hose is
proven in the factory and field, around the world, being
specified in by OEMs and used repeatedly by replacement
channels. It’s 25 percent lighter weight than conventional
hoses, making it easier to lift and handle, plus MXT is up
to 49 percent more flexible, allowing faster and more
ergonomic installations. Gates has enhanced the MXT
hose with the optional XTP cover, maintaining MXT hose
performance while adding 25 times the abrasion
resistance and enhanced ozone resistance, as validated by
a rigorous 800-hour ozone exposure test. The XTP cover
was previously introduced as the standard cover on
MXGâ„¢ 4K. MXT-XTP hose meets or exceeds relevant ISO,
SAE and EN performance standards, is MHSA-certified for
flame resistance, and is certified leak-free per SAE J1754
when used with Gates MegaCrimpâ„¢ couplings.

As a universally applicable premium hydraulic hose,
MXT-XTP is suitable for the most demanding fluid power
challenges across a broad array of industries and
applications, including construction and mining, material
handling, machining and metal processing, injection
molding and other stationary machinery, agriculture and
forestry, aerial lifts and more. Its broad applicability
allows customers to simplify and consolidate inventory
with a standardised, multi-use hose.
