Recognized for its quick, reliable seal with minimal curing time, Permatex The Right Stuff 90 Minute Gasket Maker allows technicians and do-it-yourselfers to make leak-proof gaskets that cure in just 90 minutes. It is the only gasket maker in a tube that can return a vehicle to service that quickly. The Right Stuff 90 Minute outperforms conventional pre-cut gaskets by delivering an exceptionally strong and fast seal. It is blow-out resistant and can be used on applications including valve covers, intake manifolds, coolant flanges, oil pans, and timing covers.
The new gasket maker series is offered in two formulations, The Right Stuff® 90 Minute Grey Gasket Maker for use on late model domestic and import vehicles and The Right Stuff® 90 Minute Black Gasket Maker for applications requiring a strong, flexible seal.
Eric Seibold, Senior Product & Innovation Manager, ITW Permatex, accepted the award on behalf of Permatex and noted, “Permatex is thrilled to receive this award as voted on by actual product buyers during the show. We have developed The Right Stuff 90 Minute Gasket Maker based on extensive field research with professional technicians who wanted a reliable gasket maker that could quickly be put back in service. This award is a testament to Permatex’s commitment to listen to its customers and develop new product innovations that make their jobs easier.”
