Permatex announced a new line of gaskets aimed at maximum performance when under high stress and extreme temperatures.
The Optimum Gasket Makers is Permatex’s new generation of high-performance options, saying it is the most advanced on the aftermarket.
The new gasket makers come in grey and black options, depending on use. The grey is designed for high-performance engines. It is capable of withstanding high torque loads and vibration while offering maximum temperature resistance up to +700 F. It is resistant to oils, cooling fluids and shop chemicals and is sensor safe, low odour and non-corrosive. It can be used on intake manifold end seals, valve covers, oil pans, timing covers, water pump and thermostat housings, exhaust manifolds, headers, and slip-fit exhaust parts.
The black is for lighter, more flexible engine components. It can withstand dynamic changes in assemblies with dissimilar metals, thinner, lightweight alloys, and wider spread bolt patterns. It is resistant to shop fluids and oils. Key applications include valve covers, oil pans, intake manifold seals, and timing gear covers.
Both are available in 3.35 oz. carded tube and come with an extra nozzle.
