Page 33 of catalogue Cylinder head gaskets of Reinz-Dichtungs-GmbHSDE – THE SIMPLE SOLUTION
DX – THE ALTERNATIVE SOLUTION
Principle In the gap area of the components, a sealing bead is formed onto top and/or bottom sheet, which is fully compressed during gasket installation.
Principle A moldable plastic sealing compound is printed onto the spacer sheet. A cutout in the top and/or bottom sheet limits the sealing compound from being over compressed.
QD – THE PREFERRED SOLUTION
RESERVOIR – THE SPECIAL SOLUTION
During gasket installation, the sealing compound is pressed out of the reservoir into the gap between the components. Top and/or bottom sheets have a cutout to permit an unhindered flow of the sealing compound. Application Depending on component dynamics, surface pressure, and installed thickness, the proper three-land junction solution is chosen to achieve an optimum sealing potential.
Principle A moldable silicone compound is printed onto the spacer sheet. A cutout in the top and/or bottom sheet limits the silicone compound from being over compressed.
Principle The reservoir solution is applicable for MLS designs with at least three layers. A reservoir for the non-curing sealing compound is embossed into the intermediate sheet.
