Athena 4 layer head gasket (5 cylinder)

Uprated 4 layer head gasket (5 cylinder) by Athena

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.

Raisded beadings around the combustion chambers and oil / coolant passages increase the local sealing pressure  whilst full-surface or partial elastomer coatings provide additional tightness. Thanks to their composition, Athena gaskets considerably incease the sealing and injection pressure to the lowest engine head bolt tension and guarantee better reliabiltity and performance.

The gasket is 1.2mm thick so is slightly thicker than the OE Volvo / Ford item which does have the added benefit on allowing a minor skim from the face of the Cylinder Head.

Why is the Athena Head Gasket so much better for your Focus ST225 / RS MK2?

1. High precision cut
The latest generation laser equipment makes it
possible to obtain high degrees of cut precision and
purity, totally eliminating production burrs.
Indeed, the latter can cause the infiltration of a
variety of elements (oil, water, compression gas),
compromising engine function.

2. Embossment alignment
This solution increases the gasket’s elasticity in
operation, ensuring excellent sealing capacity over
time, even under extreme conditions.
Conversely, a misalignment in the layers would
cause an immediate flattening of the gasket,
eliminating shape memory function and consequently
creating a loss of compression.

3. GAS STOPPER Technology
This technology allows racing gaskets
to increase their sealing capacity around the cylinder
(especially in high power engines).

Features

Athena 4 layer head gasket (5 cylinder)

Specifically designed to deal with increasingly high
cylinder pressures and temperatures (Athena’s gaskets
are fitted by many car manufacturers as original equipment).

Manufactured in high-grade shape memory AISI 301
stainless steel (full hard material).

Equipped with a combination of 4 outer and inner
layers, they are capable of withstanding higher
compression levels compared to standard configurations.
The types of steel used for the layers
can vary according to engine requirements.

They provide excellent sealing capacity that is uniform
across the entire surface, compensating for any type
of cylinder bore distortion.

They are the best solution for both engines with
aluminium cylinder heads with cast iron cylinder
blocks and for engines with aluminium cylinder
heads with aluminium cylinder blocks.

Each layer is individually cut with state of the art
laser equipment which guarantees perfect cut
quality, while the embossments are formed with
an optimal stabilization process.
