Leak Repair Technologies
Leak repair is inherently problematic. It requires the wide variety of application-specific materials and designs that only Fel-Pro can deliver.
These problem-solving gaskets feature the latest technologies designed specifically for the aftermarket repair environment. They are the right choice for any application in which the OE design and/or traditional replacement gaskets have been known to fail or are difficult to install. When technicians install PermaDryPlus they can be confident of an easy, precise fit and superior sealing performance, even on problematic applications.
PermaDry® premium molded-rubber is designed for those applications that utilize a molded-rubber gasket as Original Equipment. Molded-rubber gaskets are precision-designed to work with the valve cover or oil pan, which often has a special groove formed or cast into it. Engineers determine the exact amount of “squeeze” needed to achieve a secure seal.
This legendary cork-rubber solution combines the qualities of cork and rubber gaskets. It maintains its shape and flexibility, yet is highly compressible. It seals well because of its good compressibility and is easier to install than synthetic rubber gaskets because cork-rubber is somewhat rigid.
