Better Performance from the Global Leader in Head Gasket Technology

Increasingly high cylinder pressures and temperatures create a severe environment for head gaskets, which can lead to gasket failure—and the related expensive repairs and extended downtime.

Victor Reinz multi-layer steel cylinder head gaskets provide superior sealing capabilities for the aftermarket repair environment.

Head Gasket
OE head gaskets for automotive and commercial vehicles

Victor Reinz® supplies OE head gaskets to automotive and commercial vehicle manufacturers around the world. When you purchase a Victor Reinz gasket, you’ll get the same sealing power that the vehicle had when it was new.

  • Secure, lasting macro- and micro-sealing
  • Protection against fuel, oil, water, and anti-freeze
  • Resistant to temperature differences commonly found in bi-metallic engines
  • Excellent lateral stability
  • Enhanced gasket architecture in critical sealing areas
  • Effective transfer of bolt clamping forces

MLS Gaskets for Optimal Sealing

Multi-layer steel (MLS) head gaskets from Victor Reinz are manufactured using multiple layers of embossed stainless steel. Embossed beads and stoppers increase the clamping force around critical locations for macro-sealing, while elastomer coatings provide additional micro-sealing.

  • Excellent durability and elasticity
  • Gasket design accommodates singular engine architecture
  • Extremely low compression set and torque loss
  • The preferred design when combined with torque-to-yield head bolts

Nitroseal® Expanded Graphite Head Gaskets

Victor Reinz utilizes gasket designs that are appropriate for each generation of engines. As engine production shifted from heavy cast iron designs to lightweight bi-metal engines, expanded graphite head gaskets were a solution to the new sealing challenge.

  • Accommodate head motion due to thermal expansion differences in cast iron engine blocks and aluminum cylinder heads
  • Reduce torque loss
  • Expanded graphite is temperature-resistant and conformable to less-than-ideal surface finishes

Composite Head Gaskets from Victor Reinz

The classic compressible, composite head gasket is generally specified for older applications. These head gaskets feature coatings that increase micro-sealing and prevent the gasket from swelling when it comes in contact with liquids.

  • Excellent choice for traditional cast-iron engines
  • Additional elements, such as coatings, saturants, and silk-screened elastomeric sealing beads, enhance fluid sealing
  • Conformable to less-than-ideal surface finishes
