Mahle Clevite Inc. has introduced new Victor Reinz Multi-Layered Steel cylinder head gaskets. Featuring a durable black coating, these new gaskets are now available for Ford 6.0L Power Stroke engines.
The new Victor Reinz head gaskets with advanced Black Diamond coating technology are constructed of five stainless steel layers, using Dana's patented integrated push rod locators, and are coated with a Victor Reinz proprietary fluoroelastomer (rubber) coating. The new coating seals and impregnates into the mating component surface where it decreases friction forces and allows controlled sliding of the mating components relative to the gasket without fretting or damage to aluminum engine components.
"Mahle Clevite is all about continuous improvement and has refined its engine cylinder head gasket for increased performance and durability in a very demanding application," says Duane Bethke, team coordinator II - gaskets. "The new Black Diamond coating is soft enough for cold sealing and features maximum adhesion, increased durability and temperature resistance, and is also resistant to engine fluids including gas, oil and coolant. Victor Reinz gaskets with Black Diamond coating are well-suited for Ford 6.0L Power Stroke engines."

Depending on the functions that cylinder head gaskets must perform, they are fitted with different functional elements.These elements represent the freedom of design that defines MLS head gaskets.
These elements include:
• Selective materials
• Full surface and partial coatings
• Bead geometry of the active layers
• Design and number of layers
Dana’s versatile Wave-Stopper® gasket provides the design team with the maximum flexibility in distributing the sealing forces across the surface of the gasket. Concentric waves are embossed in the active functional layer of the spring steel sheet around the combustion chamber. The greatest attributes of the Wave-Stopper are the wide range of available standover heights and the ability to include a height profile (topography) within a given gasket.
