Pushing the Limits of Feasibility
These days, car manufacturers are increasingly making use of supercharged engines with small cylinder capacity – all in the name of downsizing. As a result, the engine compartment becomes hotter.

WACKER has specially manufactured heat-resistant silicone rubber grades so that valves and seals remain elastic despite the intense heat.
