Exhaust system gaskets eliminate noise, keep hot exhaust gases from entering the vehicle and also help maintain proper pressure in the system. If they fail, driveability as well as safety can be compromised. The vehicle may also fail an emissions test.
Because exhaust system replacement gaskets aren’t installed onto pristine surfaces in a factory setting, but onto imperfect surfaces in the repair environment, they must not only withstand heat and motion, they must also compensate for corrosion, pitting and warping. Combining years of aftermarket experience and advanced engineering expertise, Fel-Pro offers the ideal replacement gaskets through differentiated materials and product designs that address the unique demands and operating environments of each exhaust system repair part.
Exhaust systems for gasoline, diesel, and gas turbine engines are subjected to temperature extremes, corrosion, vibration, and thermal shock. Most of the negative effects of these conditions occur at the seals. Conventional seals simply can not meet these criteria. In conjunction with leading automotive manufacturers, Metal Textiles has developed knitted wire mesh designs that exceed them.
