– Returns vehicles to service immediately without the need for curing time –

Las Vegas, NV… Permatex®, a leading innovator in chemical technology for automotive maintenance and repair, offers an advanced, form-in-place gasket maker that creates a quick, reliable seal that requires no curing time. Permatex The Right Stuff® Gasket Maker allows technicians to assemble parts immediately and put them back in service. The Right Stuff formulation is an elastomeric rubber gasket technology that’s specified on production lines by GM, Ford, DaimlerChrysler, and Mercedes-Benz.

Fleet tested in heavy-duty commercial use

Permatex The Right Stuff protects against leaks caused by vibration, thermal expansion, and blowout. It has been fleet tested for more than 5 million ‘leak-free’ miles in heavy-duty commercial use. The Right Stuff can be used in place of most traditional gaskets in non-fuel applications and is superior to most OE gaskets. The product’s unique composition gives it the ability to seal scored surfaces and also allows the assembly to be torqued or loosened without affecting seal integrity.

According to Curtis Haines, Permatex Technical Service Mgr., “Every other form-in-place gasket on the market requires some cure time, often from two to 24 hours. For service professionals, the ability to just ‘torque and go’ is a huge advantage. It really helps them keep cars moving in the bay.”

Permatex The Right Stuff’s long-lasting elastomeric rubber formulation can withstand temperatures ranging from -75 ºF to 450 ºF continuous and 500 ºF intermittent. It is sensor-safe and resistant to ATF, coolant, oil, and other shop fluids. The Right Stuff is offered in a variety of handy sizes to meet any job requirement: 3 oz., 4 oz., and 7 oz. power cans, 7.5 oz. PowerBead™ pressurized can, 5 oz. cartridge, and 10.1 fl. oz. cartridge.

Suggested applications include transmission pans, water pump housings, differential covers, oil pans and seals, valve covers, gearboxes, and thermostats.

Editor’s note: Neither The Right Stuff Gasket Maker nor any other form-in-place gasket maker should be used to replace a head gasket.
