New Anti-Friction Coating for Metal Gaskets


As the need for environmental protection increases, auto manufacturers are forced to develop engines that are more efficient and environmentally friendly. Besides electrification, engine downsizing is a common method used to help achieve this goal, but smaller engines require materials that can withstand higher temperatures.

This 60-minute Webinar examines a new high-temperature-resistant anti-friction coating for metal gaskets, such as exhaust manifold gaskets, that is suitable for coil coating. Motor testing at 600°C revealed that exhaust manifold gaskets coated with the new anti-friction coating offered sufficient sealing and anti-seizing properties to meet current EURO 6 emission specifications requirements.

An audience Q&A follows the technical presentation.
