Victor Reinz® High-Temperature Gaskets

Overview

To ensure our high-temperature sealing systems deliver maximum durability, Dana’s team of engineers develops advanced high-temperature gasket sealing solutions to keep emissions and temperatures under control. We continuously develop high-temperature products to ensure they hold strong against today’s high-performing engines and guard against stress, high temperatures and pressures, uneven loading, flange distortion, and motion.

Dana’s Xtreme® Plus gaskets consist of a perforated stainless steel core sheet coated on both sides with a fiber-reinforced mica layer that contains temperature-resistant fibers, augmented by high-grade elastomers to bind the elements together. Suitable for an array of exhaust systems and turbocharger gaskets, Xtreme® Plus strengthens and protects engines.

The ThermoGlide® coating is designed to provide temperature resistance up to 650ºC in modern gasoline and diesel engines. Further, ThermoGlide® 1000 withstands temperatures as high as 1,000ºC, offering a 25 percent improvement over the heat resistance of competitive coatings.

Composition

Our high-temperature gasket sealing components are constructed with:

  • Flexible materials like graphite or reinforced mica-on-core for high-temperature applications.
  • Materials that can be metal encapsulated (Victofold™) to prevent extrusion and resist oxidation up to 800ºC - 850ºC (1,472ºF - 1,562ºF).
  • Varying grades of embossed metal alloys for multi-layer steel designs to suit different temperatures.
  • Graphite-filled rings wrap around a graphite-composite core, while retaining clips and internal tags allow gasket subassembly.
