The new Victor Reinz head gaskets with advanced Black Diamond coating technology are constructed of five stainless steel layers, using Dana's patented integrated push rod locators, and are coated with a Victor Reinz proprietary fluoroelastomer (rubber) coating. The new coating seals and impregnates into the mating component surface where it decreases friction forces and allows controlled sliding of the mating components relative to the gasket without fretting or damage to aluminum engine components.
"Mahle Clevite is all about continuous improvement and has refined its engine cylinder head gasket for increased performance and durability in a very demanding application," says Duane Bethke, team coordinator II - gaskets. "The new Black Diamond coating is soft enough for cold sealing and features maximum adhesion, increased durability and temperature resistance, and is also resistant to engine fluids including gas, oil and coolant. Victor Reinz gaskets with Black Diamond coating are well-suited for Ford 6.0L and 6.4L Power Stroke engines."
