Head Gaskets


To better protect engines and reduce emissions, Dana uses advanced equipment and manufacturing processes to produce durable, multi-layer steel (MLS) cylinder-head gaskets for high-pressure off-highway applications.

Our MLS cylinder-head gaskets consist of two to five layers of stainless and/or carbon steel to meet specific engine requirements.  With macro sealing, differently-shaped beads and stoppers and the elastic properties of the spring steel provide the necessary line pressure around the combustion chamber, while the micro-sealing function of these MLS gaskets is provided by partial or full-surface elastomer coatings that fill in surface roughnesses.

Key Features

  • Adaptive fluoroelastomer (FKM) coating flows to seal rougher surface finishes
  • Embossment shapes designed to improve durability
  • Stopper layer can be designed with topography to optimize load balance
  • Reduces oil consumption and bore distortion
