I ask this question because these clutch plates don, t wear out and they are supposed to be a lot stronger than the original plate .
Just imagine no more clutch problems with leaking fluids.

Sintered metal friction materials, brake shoes, clutch pucks, etc. are "porous", and would still tend to "soak up" and then release any fluids that get on them, so would still cause a clutch slippage problem if brake fluid/oil get on them.
