A Concise History of Thermoplastic Sealing Engine Cover Systems 970079

The technology to manufacture thermoplastic rocker covers has evolved significantly since early applications in the US launched in 1980.

By understanding these developments, a functional, lightweight, low-cost, full-featured cover can be designed and manufactured.
