Development of Automotive Gaskets Using Advanced Gasket Composites (AGC) 950325

Gaskets using advanced gasket composites (AGC) have been developed for automotive applications which show considerable promise in improving gasket performance (sealing characteristics) at low clamping forces. AGC as a gasket material shows excellent performance under automotive environments. It compares well with a Kevlar fiber paper material. AGC gaskets for water outlet and water pump applications have performed better than the existing gaskets on fixtures and in field. This technology offers several other attractive features such as low scrap, recyclable material, flexibility in design, consistent quality, easily moldable features and messages, etc., some of which may be particularly advantageous to the aftermarket applications..
