Dana Incorporated has added global-leading RTV sealing product Victor Reinz Reinzosil to its Spicer commercial vehicle (CV) service kits.
“Spicer CV service kits are designed to increase uptime and make the service and repair process more efficient,” says Bill Nunnery, senior director, sales and marketing, global aftermarket for Dana. “Now Dana customers will not only get all the components they need in one kit, but it will include Reinzosil silicone, the one-product solution that can take the place of more than a dozen RTV varieties and does not affect the warranty if used with Spicer CV kit products.”
Victor Reinz Reinzosil room-temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone is resistant to fluids, including mineral and synthetic oils, lubricants, gasoline, diesel fuel, greases, water, and detergents and is sensor safe. Dana says it provides superior resistance under load, even at high temperatures, and is ideal for use on two-dimensional flat surfaces where there is a sealing gap. It is also very suitable for rough sealing surfaces and can be used universally for all motor and vehicle makes. Unlike other RTV products, which may incorporate plasticizers of minor quality such as calcium carbonate or limestone, Reinzosil sealant will not shrink or lose weight in high-heat environments, the company adds.
In addition to newly added Reinzosil silicone, Spicer CV kits also contain key service components such as an oil seal, bearing cup, bearing cone, shim, thrust washer, flat washer, lock washer, D washer, snap ring, O-ring, V-ring, dowel pin, and spacer, the company says.
