HARTFORD, Conn. (Aug. 4, 2015) — Permatex, a division of ITW (Illinois Tool Works Inc.), has introduced an advanced formula RTV that is specially designed for use on vehicles with synthetic motor oils.
The new Permatex Ultra Synthetic RTV Gasket Maker is formulated to resist the aggressive chemical properties used in today's synthetic oils and prevent leak paths commonly associated with synthetic oil applications.
Permatex Ultra Synthetic RTV Gasket Maker can be used as either a formed-in-place gasket maker or sealant and is recommended for close tolerances and high performance parts. Applications include oil pans, valve covers, oil pumps, timing gear covers and intake manifold end seals.
Permatex said the gasket maker provides improved adhesion and flexibility, and maintains a tough, reliable silicone rubber seal. It will not harden, shrink or crack. The gasket maker also is low odor, non-corrosive, non-flammable, and sensor safe, the company said.
When cured, it creates a flexible seal that resists aging, weathering, and thermal cycling. Temperature resistance is up to 500 degrees F.
