June 4, 2008 – NEW YORK, NY – Stanley-Bostitch announced today the introduction of a complete line of 55 air accessories for a variety of applications including residential/commercial construction, manufacturing, automotive repair, do-it-yourself projects, and woodworking. Director of Product Development Gary Blanchette said, “This new line of accessories enhances our company’s offering thanks to an attractive set of features, competitive pricing, and the same industrialgrade durability that professionals have grown to expect from Stanley-Bostitch.”
The new Stanley®-Bostitch® air accessories include a variety of couplers, plugs, reducers, regulators, inflators, oilers, bushings and manifolds (see product detail page for more information about individual sku’s). The new line provides compatibility with industrial interchange-style fittings as well as those for automotive-style fittings, which are easily identified by color-coded icons on the package and/or display material.
All male-threaded accessories provide the convenience of pre-applied thread sealant for the same air-tight connection that is typically achieved with Teflon® tape. Therefore, this feature eliminates the need to apply thread sealant tape when assembling a pneumatic tool operation.
All couplers tout a plated steel construction and feature a drag guard for reliable performance and added durability over long periods of use. They feature either a six-ball coupler design (on industrial-type fittings) or eight-ball coupler design (on automotive-type fittings) for a balanced, secure connection over products using only three or four bearings.
