Metaloflex® from ElringKlinger
internationally acknowledged brand name for innovative,
metal cylinder-head gaskets (CHG), made of beaded,
elastomer-coated, spring-steel layers and consisting
of a single layer or multiple layers depending on the
actual application. Thanks to its modular design elements,
this sealing system can be tuned exactly to the technical
requirements of the individual engine. This means that
many repetitive tasks are no longer necessary, saving
both time and money. Providing almost unlimited freedom
The technical strengths of the multi-layer metal CHG
are especially beneficial when used on high-performance
spark-ignition engines and diesel engines with direct
injection. This sealing system undisputedly ranks in
first place in the passenger car market worldwide.
Thanks to Metaloflex®, ElringKlinger is the world's
largest manufacturer of multi-layer metal cylinder-head
Metal-elastomer cylinder-head gaskets from
strong and durable sealing system consisting of metal
carriers with vulcanized elastomer profiles.
The basis for outstanding performance of the metal-elastomer
cylinder-head gasket is the innovative distribution
of compressive strength in the engine block / cylinder
head region - specific compressive strength in the
combustion chamber area and a low compressive strength
in the liquid area. The metal-elastomer cylinder-head
gasket is the leading sealing technique for heavy-duty
engines in the commercial vehicle sector - for innovative
drive concepts with four-valve technology, new injection
systems, lightweight construction, higher ignition
pressures and optimized engine performance.
Cylinder-head gaskets for commercial vehicles, with
Even under extreme conditions, the metal-elastomer
cylinder-head gasket never fails to function with absolute
reliability: ignition pressures up to 180 bar, engine
outputs in excess of 2000 kW and an engine service
life of more than 1,500,000 km present no problem whatsoever.
As one of the world's leading manufacturers of cylinder-head
gaskets for commercial vehicles, ElringKlinger is committed
to constantly improving its metal-elastomer system,
providing the right engineering solution for this challenge.
For instance at present, the top pressure limit is
being redefined at 220 bar.
Modern sealing systems do a lot
They guarantee a
reliable seal for various media (oil, coolant, fuels,
combustion gas), both from the atmosphere and from
the mating components. Furthermore, they act as a power
transmission element between engine components while
also carrying out vital secondary functions.
To ensure a reliable sealing system, sufficient surface
pressure must be available for static flat gaskets
in all operating conditions. In the designing process,
many factors must be taken into consideration: operating
media, fluctuations in temperature and operating pressure,
design elements (e.g. bolts and sealing surfaces),
the position of the gasket in the system and also the
long-term performance of the gasket material.
ElringKlinger has the right special-purpose gasket
(Metaloseal®, elastomer, soft-material) for a multitude
of sealing tasks in the powertrain, exhaust system
and auxiliaries, for instance compressors or pumps.
Material and design are finely tuned to the specific
requirements of the application.
