Cometic MLS Head Gaskets provide maximum sealing performance for today's high output engines and require no sealants. MLS (Multi Layer Steel) gaskets are ideal for performance engines, whether they use an aluminum head and aluminum block or a cast iron block. They are designed to withstand the shearing force created by engines with different metals used in the block or head of your Import.
MLS gaskets have outstanding strength because they are constructed of multiple layers of stainless steel. With this innovative design, they are able to create headgaskets that have the ability to rebound and resist corrosion. The top and bottom layers are embossed and coated on both sides with Viton (a fluoroelastomer rubber based material that is heat resistant to 250C / 482F). This unique chemical is designed to meet the demands of today's lightweight engines, which are producing more horsepower, higher cylinder pressures, more clamp load and extreme temperatures. The center, or shim layer, is uncoated stainless steel, which can be varied to accommodate multiple thickness requirements.
On select applications, we also offer Cometic's MLX line of head gaskets. These gaskets use an integrated stopper layer for better combustion chamber sealing and offer all of the benefits of MLS gaskets. With that, they greatly improved on the clamping load around the cylinder to help prevent blown head gasket issues without increasing bore distortion. Also, a great complementary part to consider when replacing a head gasket or doing an engine rebuild would be ARP Head Studs. They will help keep your high performance engine, either boosted or naturally aspirated, from failing when you need it!
