Transportation has always been the industry behind Fel-Pro Gaskets. Originally named Felt products manufacturing and the manufacturer of horse blankets, it transitioned to supplying felt gaskets for Ford Model T connections and then shortening it name to Fel-Pro. Fel-Pro no longer manufactures horse blankets, but over the last 98 years has evolved to be a world leader in the design and manufacture of innovative gasket sealing technologies for the repair market.

Oil Pan Sealing Technologies
Fel-Pro® PermaDryPlus® gaskets’ one-piece construction makes installation easier than OEM style multi-piece assemblies or RTV sealing. Edge-molded silicone rubber on a rigid carrier provides superior fit, and high heat and vacuum resistance, while the included Oil Pan SnapUps® speed installation. Fel-Pro® PermaDry® premium molded rubber gaskets seal so well that their use means virtually no drip spots on the garage floor, making it the perfect replacement for OE molded rubber gaskets. Its casting is engineered with the molded rubber gasket to provide an even clamping force along the entire oil pan.
cork-rubber combines the qualities of cork and rubber gaskets. It maintains its shape and flexibility, yet is highly compressible. It seals well because of its good compressibility and is easier to install than synthetic rubber gaskets because cork-rubber is somewhat rigid.
Oil Pan Design
Many current engines use heavier, cast oil pans to add supplemental strength to the vehicle frame. These engines require complex molded-rubber or rigid carrier design gaskets. Fel-Pro’s application-specific oil pan gaskets are designed to more than meet this challenge.
