Dana Inc. has introduced a new line of Victor Reinz Victor-Lock reusable differential gaskets designed for severe-duty applications. These gaskets, according to the company, feature FoamFlex facing material bonded to a steel core with selective silicone beading to enhance sealing stress and improve loading in critical areas.
Victor-Lock reusable differential gaskets are manufactured with FoamFlex material on both sides of the gasket to provide a level of compression and recovery while the steel core provides strength, Dana notes. The company says that the Victor Reinz blue elastomeric sealing bead localizes sealing stresses, aids in sealing in between bolt holes, and provides protection for castings that are not perfectly flat or in perfect alignment. There is also an instant seal, so service technicians do not have to wait for reassembly, according to the press release.
