Garnish - Cars

With the internal combustion engine, one of the most important parts is the toppings. There are many types, models and sizes depending on the engine type. The greatest and most important seal is an engine head gasket. This is the gasket that sits between the engine block and cylinder head in an internal combustion engine. Its purpose is sealed to ensure maximum compression and avoid leakage of coolant or engine oil into the cylinders. This appears to be the most critical sealing applied to each engine.

There are several types of engine gaskets made from different materials. One typea are MSL seals, which are used in modern engines. They usually consist of three layers of steel. Contact persons of the engine gasket are usually covered with a rubber coating such as Viton.

Other gaskets used in the engine can be made of copper sheets called solid brass fittings, which usually requires special machining called o-ringing, in which a piece of wire is placed around the circumference of the cylinder. Copper gaskets are extremely durable for use in internal combustion engines. Some car manufacturers have already started producing copper gaskets that are inseparable and do not require their removal from the unit when operating a motor. The next type are composite gaskets are combined trimmings.

This type of engine gasket is usually made from asbestos or graphite. They are more prone to damage than the newer types of seals. Asbestos gaskets are used less frequently because of health concerns. The other type of trimmings we will go over are elastomeric, used by Rover engines in the K Series. They use steel sheet core and silicone rubber to seal the passages of the oil and coolant. The holes are sealed by rolled steel rings in a conventional manner. The idea behind the design of these seals is to produce a production version of the technology used in F1 engines.

Seals of smaller versions of the K Series have been very successful. However, changing the design of the engine leads to permanent problems and instability with this type of gasket.
