Permatex's gasket maker resists synthetic oils
Permatex has introduced an advanced formula gasket maker that is formulated to resist the aggressive chemical properties used insynthetic oils and prevent leak paths commonly associated with synthetic oil applications.
Permatex Ultra Synthetic RTV Gasket Maker can be used as either a formed-in-place gasket maker or sealant and is highly recommended for close tolerances and high performance parts.
Applications include oil pans, valve covers, oil pumps, timing gear covers, intake manifold end seals, and more.
The company says Permatex Ultra Synthetic RTV Gasket Maker provides excellent adhesion and flexibility and maintains a tough, reliable silicone rubber seal. It will not harden, shrink or crack.
The gasket maker is also low odor, non-corrosive, non-flammable, and sensor safe. When cured, it creates a flexible seal that resists aging, weathering, and thermal cycling. Temperature resistance is up to 500° F.
