Gaskets, shaft seal rings and sealing washers ensure that two parts can be joined together leak-free. These can be parts of the same material as well as two different types of material. For example, a plastic thermostat housing is screwed against a cast iron or aluminium engine block. Depending on the parts and the application, a paper, rubber or aluminium gasket is fitted. There are also various types of liquid gaskets or sealants which act as gaskets. This includes the Dirko collection from Elring.
Here you will find all types of gaskets which are suitable for your vehicle’s engine block. Some examples include the cylinder head gasket, turbocharger gasket and cylinder head cover gasket. When assembling a new part, it is always advisable to fit a new gasket; only in a few cases can certain gaskets be reused.
