Cometic joins the 2013 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge as contingency sponsor in the head gasket category.
When the pressure is on, second-rate parts simply will not do, so we are especially pleased to announce that Cometic Gaskets is on board as a contingency sponsor for the 2013 AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge. When building an engine for competition, a failure will put any engine out of contention. It pays to use the kinds of components you can depend upon to get the job done, and when it comes to sealing the cylinder head to the block, no one does it better than Cometic. Their signature Multi-Layered Steel (MLS) head gaskets provide maximum sealing performance and require no sealants. With dissimilar metals often used at the block-to-head junction, the head gasket’s role has become more demanding than ever. MLS gaskets are ideal for both aluminum heads on aluminum blocks and aluminum heads on cast iron blocks. These MLS gaskets can withstand the shearing force created by the two materials.
The strength of MLS gaskets is far superior to other gasket construction because they are comprised of multiple layers of stainless steel. This gives the gasket its characteristic ability to rebound and resist corrosion. The outer layers are embossed and coated on both sides with Viton, a flouroelastomer rubber-based material that is heat resistant to 250C/482F. This Viton coating is designed to meet the demands of a variety of harsh sealing environments, load conditions, and surface finishes. The center or shim layer is uncoated stainless steel, which can be varied to accommodate multiple thickness requirements. Cometic head gaskets are available in a wide range of configurations including custom specifications to meet your individual needs.
