About Cometic Gasket Ltd UK/Europe

Formed in 1999 to represent Cometic Inc in the UK and Europe, to develop through our competition engine customers custom gaskets, to redefine the phrase custom product into joint project development so as far as possible both Cometic and the customer can work together to improve and gain knowledge to produce the ultimate gasket for any application.

With our continued involvement in engine technology at manufacture and competition level we are constantly re evaluating MLS (Multi layer steel) gasket design transferring our increasing knowledge directly into our catalogue parts range.

We have built a network of specialized Cometic dealers throughout the UK believing that having companies with extensive knowledge and experience of a particular engine or car type can offer the customer advice on the correct Cometic gasket product best suited to your requirements.

Rob Barker MD Cometic Gasket Ltd

Following an extensive engineering apprenticeship in the early 70s, including design manufacture and fabrication. During this period was involved closely in Pro Fuel, Drag Racing motorcycle engineering development and International Kart racing this was the catalyst for leaving my position as an engineering lecturer at Hertford University in 1972 to join Brian Hart Ltd as a race engine builder this was the most informative intercive period of my working life. With diverse Ford off season projects, World Rally programme, F2 and the F1 Turbo era the period was the berth of race engine electronics, controls and Turbo design a totally invaluable opportunity to learn and fully understand the internal combustion engine in the late 80s and 90s.  I was producing race engine components and freelance race engine building including motorcycle engine design for a major manufacturer and projects in supercharging, working in the USA, Germany, work in the UK including BTCC, F3, Indycar and many others. I am currently working with race engine manufacturers on gasket development projects, our ability as a company to still produce small run custom items leads Cometic into many avenues the larger gasket manufacturers would not even consider this leads to involvement at many levels on engine design new and old further increasing our knowledge of our product.
