Victor Reinz® Molded Gaskets

Overview

Dana’s molded gaskets include many different rubber gasket designs to seal joints in engines and transmissions, which improves durability and reduces downtime.

Carrier style gaskets seal components with a plastic or metal carrier fastened to a specific elastomer. This creates a steady pressure to secure components with an unbreakable seal, better protecting the engine and extending product life.

Our molded pressed-in-place gaskets are completely compacted in a metal-to-metal joint groove in die-cast front covers, oil pans, and other housings with an as-cast groove for superior durability. Retention features of the material also provide a void/volume, self-retaining design which allows for greater sealing pressure.

Application

Edge bonded gaskets are used when the gasket is molded onto an edge of a rail for structural joints with high loading, and are ideal for medium-pressure applications where the created force acts as a self-sealant.

Cured-in-place gaskets use a robotically applied sealing bead to ensure consistent placements. Elastomeric sealing technology is applied in this molded gasket without the cost of injection molding for low volume applications. These gaskets are typically used in covers, water pumps, and parts that require a solid joint between the gasket or parts with low wall depth.

Key Features

  • Securely adhere to mating components
  • Allow greater flexibility within sealed joints
  • Added components can be easily incorporated into the design
