This AFM gasket material has excellent temperature resistance, torque retention, and compression.There will be no pink, green, or blue gasket material hanging over the edge of your rocker box.
No sealant of any type is needed, and due to the high rate of recovery when disassembled, in most cases the gaskets can be reused.
