Development of a New Metal Cylinder Head Gasket 980844
With the recent improvements in automotive engine performance, the operating conditions for the cylinder head gasket are becoming more critical. Today's cylinder head gasket is required not only to ensure high durability, but also to contribute to improving engine performance.
This paper introduces a new metal cylinder head gasket consisting of two beaded plates and a thin sheet in-between. Because of the thin sheet, this gasket has several superior characteristics for open decked aluminum cylinder block engines. Sealability and durability were significantly improved.
