SOUTHFIELD, Mich.—Fel-Pro® Gaskets, a brand from DRiV Automotive Inc., has developed the next generation of proprietary coatings for its PermaTorque® MLS multi-layered steel head gaskets. DRiV Automotive said in a press release that the next generation coatings were designed to help adapt to today’s higher temperature engine environments.
Fel-Pro PermaTorque MLS head gaskets were created to help seal imperfect surfaces. They are equipped with a proprietary coating that resists scrubbing and compensates for surface finishes as rough as 80 Ra, creating a reliable seal that technicians can depend on, the company said. The gaskets feature LaserWeld™ exclusive stopper layer technology, which is reported to prevent gasket damage and help to ensure a superior combustion seal.
Each gasket’s multiple layers of full-hard stainless steel are reported to maintain gasket shape and accommodate head lift. Sealing beads, strategically placed at all vital areas, eliminate leak paths.
“Fel-Pro is the brand of gaskets that professional technicians depend on to deliver the latest in innovative sealing solutions for the real-world repair environment,” said Jim Daigle, senior product manager, Fel-Pro, in the release. ”They know that Fel-Pro provides the right materials and technologies, such as PermaTorque MLS and PermaDryPlus, to help them seal the less-than-perfect sealing surfaces they may encounter in the bay.” “With the introduction of PermaTorque MLS with proprietary NextGen coating, techs now have an additional application-specific product to use for some of their most challenging sealing repairs.”
