Permatex gasket maker


Permatex announced a new line of gaskets aimed at maximum performance when under high stress and extreme temperatures.

The Optimum Grey Gasket Maker 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, among others.

The Optimum Black Gasket Maker 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.
