MAHLE Clevite has announced a line of new Victor Reinz MLS cylinder head gaskets featuring a durable black coating for Ford 6.0L and 6.4L Power Stroke engines.

The new head gaskets with advanced Black Diamond coating technology are constructed of five stainless steel layers, utilizing Dana’s patented integrated pushrod locators and are coated with a Victor Reinz proprietary fluoroelastomer (rubber) coating. The new coating seals and impregnates into the mating component surface where it decreases friction forces and allows controlled sliding of the mating components relative to the gasket without fretting or damage to aluminum engine components. The new Black Diamond coating is soft enough for cold sealing and features maximum adhesion, increased durability and temperature resistance, and is resistant to fuel, oil, and coolants.
