Gaskets and seals are the components used in vehicles to prevent fluid and gas leakage. They fill the gap between the automotive components thus ensuring no leakage. The seals prevent lubricants from escaping the bearings. The seal also avoids dust and other contaminants from entering the machinery.
With the technological advancements, gaskets and seals offer an effective means to obtain better fuel economy and have reduced the repair and maintenance requirement, thereby improving the average life span of automotive components. Moreover, the stringent regulations regarding the maximum limit on emissions as incorporated by automotive agencies are further expected to drive the market. There has been an increasing usage of lightweight materials such as silicone rubber to further cut fuel cost and improve efficiency. The manufacturers are focusing on the development of materials that reduce the fuel requirement and can withstand high heat as well as pressure.
