​The Challenge

With increasing performance of nowadays cars and trucks, (In today's high-performance cars and trucks), critical parts under the hood – turbochargers and coolant hoses, exhaust systems, intercooler and engine seals, gaskets – are subjected/exposed to huge temperature fluctuations and peaks. The majority of automotive parts suppliers now demand products for gaskets or seals that can withstand temperatures of up to 220°C. These critical parts must also resist the effects of air pressure, water flow, fuel injection and corrosive fluids.
