You can’t beat the strength of steel!

PROBLEM
“The harsh chemical environment created by extended-life anti-freeze, coupled with temperature extremes, causes failure in my intake manifold gaskets.”

SOLUTION
MaxDry STL® gaskets seal even in demanding environments, thanks to premium synthetic rubber that’s precision-molded onto corrosion-resistant aluminized steel carriers, and to coolant ports with scalloped openings that reduce compression stress.

Surviving OAT Coolants and Extended Service Intervals

Today’s intake manifold gaskets must seal and survive in much more demanding environments than in the past, including exposure to extended-life anti-freeze, known as OAT (Organic Acid Technology) coolants. For over 10 years, Victor Reinz’s U.S.-based factory has been a leading supplier of advanced-technology intake manifold gaskets for original equipment, OEM service and the automotive aftermarket. 

Unique Advantages of MaxDry STL

Pushrod Installation Guides
Pushrod Installation Guides

The GM 3.1/3.4L V6 and the GM 5.0/5.7L V8 gaskets received special attention from Victor Reinz. The coolant ports in our steel gasket carriers feature “scalloped” openings to reduce stress on the molded rubber seal when compressed on the engine, representing a major benefit. Our 3.1/3.4L gaskets also have an easy-to-see advantage. Victor Reinz added a patent-pending pushrod installation guide that’s like having an extra hand helping you assemble the valve train.

High-Grade FKM Molded Synthetic Rubber

What makes FKM so special for the molded seals? FKM is a premium fluorocarbon-based synthetic rubber with very desirable properties for automotive and aerospace applications. It resists exposure to a wide range of chemicals, including oil, anti-freeze and fuel. It remains resilient and strong at higher temperatures than most rubber compounds can withstand.
