FIBERLOCK™ Head Gasket & Block Repair, launched under the company's K&W brand, is a "Do-It-Yourself" pour-and-go product that permanently repairs cracks in head gaskets, engine blocks, freeze plugs, cylinder heads and radiators.  FIBERLOCK™ is the newest addition to the K&W line of engine repair products that began with K&W Permanent Metallic™ Block Seal in 1938.

"FIBERLOCK™ contains a powerful 3-tier formula compatible with all types of antifreeze," says Julie Williams, Marketing Manager for CRC. "It repairs leaks using three unique technologies: military-strength proprietary fibers, nanotechnology and Cool-X™ Conditioner, resulting in the ultimate permanent repair solution for all coolant leaks."

The sodium silicate contained in FIBERLOCK™ is reinforced with fibers that make an interlocking web-like weave over the crack or breach, creating a permanent, multi-layer, impenetrable repair, and the product's nano-sized particles can reach into cracks and crevices that other products can't. "This makes the molecular bond stronger, more solid and permanently hardened to the surface area," says Williams.  FIBERLOCK™ also features Cool-X™ Conditioner, which circulates in the cooling system for lower operating temperatures and improved heat transfer long after the repair is made.

CRC developed K&W FIBERLOCK™ to offer do-it-yourselfers and professional installers an alternative to time-consuming and costly repairs for engine problems such as a cracked cylinder head or a blown head gasket.  Williams says, "When the cost of the professional repair is not an affordable option, offer your customer a different solution. You will gain a loyal customer for life."

K&W FIBERLOCK™ is now available at AutoZone® and other quality automotive retailers and wholesale distributors.  CRC Industries offers a double money-back guarantee on the product.

MSRP:  $45.99   32 Fl. Oz.

CRC trademarked brands include: CRC®, K&W®, Sta-Lube®, and Marykate®.  CRC products are sold throughout the US, Europe, South America and the Pacific Rim.  CRC operates 12 facilities that produce more than 70 million cans of aerosol products a year.

CRC is ISO 9001:2008 certified and adheres to the strictest guidelines for quality in all facets of research, development and product.
