The cylinder head gasket sits between the engine block and cylinder head, the most critical gasket in your engine. It seals the cylinders’ firing pressure and prevents coolant and engine oil from leaking into the cylinders and outside.
The cause of a blown or damaged head gasket is often a result of an engine that has gotten too hot. It makes the cylinder head’s expansion and distortion and prevents gasket from sealing properly. If the head gasket is blown, you may notice a few or all of the symptoms such as engine overheating, white smoke coming from the tailpipe, a chocolate milk-looking oil, loss of Power accompanied by a sound like an exhaust leak, etc.
The cylinder head gasket must withstand the ability to survive under high temperature and high-pressure environments and must withstand various chemical gas/liquid. Therefore, graphite is one of the most commonly used materials for manufacturing cylinder head gaskets. Graphite has excellent flexibility for high pressure and can endure heat up to 450 Celsius. Also, cylinder head gaskets materials could be steel, MLS and metal bonded with rubber.
