This is from a manual for the seal tester of a cylinder crankcase of a Harley motorcycle.

Wyhlidahl gives lots for Spreizring. Hydraulic spreader ring gasket?

English translation:oil control spacer/expander ring
Explanation:
Dunno Marcus, but you might be able to do something with this. I don't know at all how Dichtung would fit in here. Langenscheidt translates Spreizring as expanding ring, expander spacer and ring expander.

Premium Piston Rings
The exclusive Flex-Vent oil control ring is the easiest of all designs to install ... The 80-plus shoulders on the die-formed stainless-steel stress relieved spacer-expander exerts uniform pressure on the rails assuring positive oil control, and with its open design affords 200% greater drainage capacity than conventional designs.

The cylinder block has a very high nickel and carbon content, which makes the cylinder walls very hard, so there is little wear on the cylinder. In some cases, the oil control rings have been found to be worn so much that the oil control ring spacer/expander has been wearing on the cylinder wall.
