Proton Saga Oil Pan Gasket - Interface RN-8011 Material

This oil pan gasket looks familiar isn't it? It is just a Proton Saga oil pan gasket, so what is so special on this piece? This piece is made from the Interface RN-8011 material, and what so special on this material? Let's have a look on this gasket material specification.

Specification Data Sheet
Standard/Nonasbestos Gasket Material
RN-8011 is a low density cellulose fiber material with high rubber filler content and a nitrile butadiene rubber binder. It provides excellent sealing of oil and water at low flange pressures, and is used primarily for engine and transmission pan gaskets, water pumps, and environmental seals. It is intended for applications with short duration maximum temperatures up to 180oC (350oF). RN-8011 has UL component recognition.
