Advantages of Solid Copper Gaskets

When it comes to your automobile, knowing that you have the best parts available gives you confidence in the reliability of your car. Gaskets are an important component of your car, as they help maintain pressure and prevent leakage of important fluids. Solid copper gaskets are used in many high-performance vehicles.

One of the advantages of solid copper is that it is stronger than rubber and do not have a tendency to become brittle or crack over time. It is also more flexible than layered steel. Other types of gaskets require coatings to improve the seal. These coatings can burn off and cause damage to the head gasket. Solid copper ones are able to conform to the surface without the use of coatings. The ability to conform to the surface creates a tighter seal.
