338253R - VW Audi VAG Athena Head Gasket 20V Turbo MLS
Athena MLS Headgaskets consist of 2-5 layers of steel sheets of different compositions and covered by an elastomer layer that gives excellent sealing properties. Beadings around the combustion chambers and oil/coolant passages increase the local sealing pressure (Macro sealing) whilst full-surface or partial elastomer coatings provide additional tightness (Micro Sealing). Thanks to their composition, Athena gaskets considerably increase the sealing and injection pressure to the lowest engine head bolt tension and guarantee better reliabiltity and performance.
