HANNOVER, Germany, September 21, 2010 - Following the success of Dana Holding Corporation's (NYSE: DAN)
proprietary Wave-Stopper(R) gasket design, the company has introduced an
innovative sealing component for light- and commercial-vehicle applications,
the Victor Reinz(R) Linear Stopper(TM) sealing technology.

Developed for use in exhaust manifold and turbocharger cylinder-head
gaskets, the new generation of sealing technology is available in both
single-layer and multi-layer steel designs. Offering increased stiffness and
optimal distribution of sealing forces across gasket surfaces, the Linear
Stopper feature of the gasket includes a trapezoidal shape that allows for a
highly uniform seal. The resulting seal offers improved reliability and
durability, as well as reduced oil consumption and bore distortion
surrounding gasket bolt holes. In addition, the unique design of the product
increases customer design flexibility within gasket installation space.

Due to its air-gap insulating properties, the Linear Stopper technology -
when compared with competitor solutions - eliminates heat transfer of up to
100 degrees Celsius between engine block, seal, and cylinder head. Associated
with this substantial temperature difference are potential fuel savings,
leading to reduced carbon emissions over a vehicle's lifecycle.

"A modern sealing solution, the Linear Stopper technology achieves much
more than an exceptional seal," said David Nash, chief engineer for sealing
programs in the Dana Power Technologies Group. "It improves design
flexibility, reduces heat transfer, and contributes to potential fuel
savings. With every product, Dana engineers seek to create innovative and
sustainable solutions to meet market demands."

Commercial Vehicle Expo, Hall 17, Booth B27 through Sept. 30, 2010.
