Unlike the conventional, composite head gasket that uses a compressible substrate, Upgraded (Multi-Layer-Steel) MLS head gaskets are comprised of layers of embossed steel. Most MLS gaskets consist of between three and five layers of steel, with the embossing localized around key points like cylinder bores and oil and water ports. The outside layers are treated to a thin coating that helps the gasket conform or “cold seal” to any irregularities in the surfaces of the block and head.

The benefit of MLS gaskets is realized once the engine’s cylinder pressures rise above that which would normally blow-out a composite gasket, and their survival is due to their design.
