Premium Sealing Technologies Application

Advanced Sealing Technologies Designed for the Repair Environment

Leak Repair Sealing Products

Some applications present especially tough sealing challenges. While most standard gaskets from any brand will initially seal, some won’t stand up to chemicals, vibration and the harsh operating environment of the engine.

Fel-Pro® PermaDryPlus® gaskets are specifically engineered to take on troublesome sealing situations. These premium gaskets feature specialized technologies that solve sealing problems commonly encountered in the repair environment. Unaffected by harsh environments, and impervious to all types of coolants and oils, Fel-Pro PermaDryPlus provides a permanent seal and is absolutely the right replacement choice. Fel-Pro PermaDryPlus is the premium leak sealing technology that results in a premium repair.

Key benefits of Fel-Pro® PermaDryPlus® gaskets:

  • One-piece, molded silicone rubber construction provides superior blowout resistance.
  • Time-saving rigid carrier system provides instant fit without adhesives, hence the name “PermaDryPlus”.
  • Lasts up to five times longer than cork-rubber.
  • Precision sealing beads reinforce critical areas.
  • Superior heat resistance assures longer life.
  • Torque limiters prevent overtightening.
  • Added features such as Hole-Locks,® Snap-Ups® and locating tabs help make installation easier.
