Gates Corp. is introducing a new fuel hose design that helps prevent vapor loss for improved fuel efficiency and environmental compliance. Dubbed the Barricade, the new hose is designed for virtually any engine application that's equipped with a conventional carburetor, including trucks, cars, tractors, and lawn and garden equipment.

Grote Industries has announced the first commercially available versions of its LightForm flexible LED lighting film. The new product had been unveiled earlier this year. The film is ultra-thin and pliable to allow users to bend lighting around corners and over obstacles. Its thin nature allows it to squeeze into small crevices and between panels and trim, Grote said.
