Dana adds multilayer steel gasket production in China

May 21, 2014

Dana Holding Corp., Maumee, Ohio, has launched production of its Victor Reinz® multilayer steel (MLS) cylinder head gaskets, exhaust gaskets, and transmission valve body separator plates at its facility in Wuxi, Jiangsu Province, China.

The 129,000-sq.-ft. technical center is a comprehensive engineering and manufacturing facility.

The MLS cylinder head gasket designs comprise multiple layers of stainless steel, coated with a proprietary elastomeric material to provide a robust seal against cylinder head and block surfaces. Mechanical embossments around the combustion chambers and oil and coolant openings provide custom-designed load distribution for optimized sealing of gases and liquids. The coated and embossed layers then are assembled to form the finished gasket.
