High temperature gasket makers
Permatex introduced a new line of High Temp Red Gasket Makers that are specially engineered to withstanding the extremes of high thermal cycling experienced in today’s engines. Permatex Red Gasket Makers can be used for a wide range of high temperature repairs and service applications on headers, exhaust manifolds, turbochargers, slip-fit exhaust parts, and more. In addition to high temperature performance and resistance to oils and common shop fluids, these new OEM-specified gasket makers are also sensor safe, low odor, and non-corrosive.
New line of Permatex Epoxies
Permatex launched a new series of advanced epoxy adhesives, designed as a two-part adhesive and filler system to help customers make better and easier repairs in a wide range of automotive, marine, and general-purpose home applications. The line includes 1 Minute and 5 Minute General Purpose Gel Epoxies, 2 Ton Epoxy, Marine H2 Hold Epoxy, 500° High Heat Epoxy, Cellulose Wood Epoxy, Black Plastic Welder™, and Steel Weld™ Epoxy.
A new tamper-proof indicator
Designed to easily identify loosening and tampering of nuts, bolts, fasteners, and assemblies, Permatex introduced Bolt Mark tamper-proof indicator paste for professional technicians and DIYers alike. The paste acts as a visual marker of completed work and easily identifies if a fastener has become loose or has been tampered with. Permatex Bolt Mark provides warranty protection against tampering and can also help save time when completing a job, by providing a visual indication of which assemblies have been torqued and which still need to be tightened.
