Next Generation Formed-In-Place Gasket (FIPG) Liquid Sealant for Automotive Powertrain Applications 2008-01-1478

In response to OEM needs and industry trends within the powertrain gasketing segment, a next generation FIPG liquid sealant is being introduced. These needs and trends include a robust and low-cost sealing solution, improved long-term hot-oil resistance, increased permeability resistance of materials to meet low emissions vehicle (LEV) requirements, extended open times, and oil foaming issues. A new compound based on polyacrylate (ACM) rubber has been successfully proven as a sealant for FIP gasketing. The following paper will compare this new technology to FIPG liquid sealants used today for vehicle powertrain gasketing applications.
