Material properties, coating performance and ring design are combined to form a dynamic sealing system that will deliver maximum service life and minimum maintenance needs. Being so deeply rooted in so many large bore engine application fields, we know how important reliability is for an engine that has a typical lifespan of 20 to 30 years and needs to run efficiently. Thanks to our long-term focus on large bore engine applications, we have rings for servicing all types of engines – including old ones. Goetze piston rings cover 4-stroke large bore engines while our Daros brand piston rings cover 2-stroke large bore engines.
