Vaness LLC
ICE Emissions Reduction System

Vaness LLC has announced the introduction of its ICE Emissions Reduction system to be produced and sold through the company’s Velvet Comfort Heating division.   

“This product will warm the cold exhaust coming from the manifold exhaust and heat it before it reaches the catalytic converter. This will greatly reduce pollutants from being released into the atmosphere,” said Kit Whipple, Velvet Comfort Heating vice president of marketing.  

Vaness’ patent-pending heating system uses heating devices which warm to more than 600° F in less than seven seconds. Two units were used in testing the effectiveness of the system. According to Whipple, the high-powered, low-cost system has powerful economic and environmental potential.


Lightweight Billet Reservoirs for Remote- or Direct-Mount Master Cylinders

Finned aluminum brake fluid reservoirs from Wilwood give your firewall a unique high-performance look. Machining ribs in the billet reduces weight (now 4.6 oz.–3 oz. less than Wilwood’s standard billet reservoir) and increases surface area for passive cooling.

These durable reservoirs hold 4 oz. of fluid and can be mounted directly to Wilwood’s single or tandem remote master cylinders, or plumbed remotely with braided stainless flex lines (sold separately).

Choose from media burnished aluminum with matching cap or hard anodized gray with black nylon cap. Matching billet mounting brackets are also available.

GoPure GP5212 Automotive Air Purifier

Lumileds has just introduced the new Philips GoPure GP5212, a powerful, compact, and innovative car air purifier that can quickly remove up to 100 different types of pollutants and neutralize unpleasant odors in any vehicle. GoPure GP5212 uses a special three-layer filter technology to quickly deliver clean, fresh air in minutes and its extremely compact and portable design makes it easy to use anywhere in the vehicle.

The Philips SelectFilter Plus technology quickly and effectively filters out small particles, viruses, bacteria, pollen and toxic gases. The first stage is a pre-filter designed to capture large particles such as pet hair, dust, and airborne dirt. The second layer features a High Efficiency Sorbent Agent (HESA) filter that scrubs out toxic gases and harmful chemicals and uses a powerful absorption and oxidation process to remove smoke, odors and gases.

The final layer employs a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter that removes more than 99% of airborne bacteria and viruses. It also captures ultra-fine particles, as small as 0.015 microns, that can get deep into the lungs and cause health issues.

The Philips GoPure GP5212 is designed to operate automatically, so the driver can focus on operating the vehicle. When plugged into the vehicle’s auxiliary power outlet, the unit turns on and off with the vehicle’s ignition. GoPure GP5212 two-speed fan can be easily adjusted by the power button. An indicator light signals the need for a filter replacement.

KBS Coatings
All-In-One Kit Rust and Corrosion Prevention
KBS Coatings

The All-In-One Kit by KBS Coatings is a DIY, user-friendly all-Inclusive kit uses KBS Coatings’ three-step system that consists of KBS Klean to clean surfaces, RustBlast to remove surface rust, and RustSeal to seal metal against moisture. KBS Top Coater provides a beautiful, durable, UV stable and permanent final finish, which withstands dulling and fading caused by prolonged sunlight exposure.

RustSeal, a rust inhibitive and preventative paint, chemically bonds to metal including rusted metal or any substrate. KBS Coatings Advanced Cross-Linked Technology provides a flexible yet rock-hard and non-porous barrier that won't crack, chip or peel.

RustSeal works by isolating metal from moisture. Without moisture present, steel can't rust. RustSeal is incredibly tough and extremely resistant to abrasion and impact. KBS Top Coater provides a final finish. This very-high solids paint does not run or sag and gives at least twice the coverage of conventional paints. Top Coater is available in 16 colors, including the popular KBS Camo Colors camouflage colors pallet.
