Cometic C4589-032 Head Gasket
MLX Cylinder Head Gasket
Cometic Head Gaskets are developed with the performance
enthusiast in mind. With so many individual requirements for each
motor Cometic offers a number of options to suit your specific
motor and needs.
The Cometic MLS gasket is comprised of
three layers of Stainless Steel. Cometic uses Stainless steel for
increased strength, it?s ability to rebound and corrosion
resistance. The outer layers of the gasket are embossed and coated
on both sides with a flouroelastomer rubber based material (Viton)
designed to meet the demands of a variety of harsh sealing
environments, load conditions and surface finishes. The Viton
coating is heat resistant to 2500C or 4820F.
The center or shim layer of the gasket is comprised of an
uncoated Stainless Steel layer, which can be varied to accommodate
multiple thickness requirements. The MLS
gasket is ideal for both aluminum heads to cast iron blocks and
aluminum heads to aluminum blocks.
The composition of MLS will also
withstand the shearing forces created by aluminum heads on cast
iron blocks. No re-torque is necessary. By design the MLS gasket promotes an even torque load across the
sealing surface allowing for measurable reduced bore
A perforated steel core with an elastomer surface is ideal for head
gaskets allowing heat to be drawn evenly across the gasket surface
while providing maximum sealing characteristics when exposed to
coolants and oils.
