Phathead cylinder heads are made of 6061 T6 billet aluminum. The material is stronger and transfers heat better than cast aluminum. The two piece design allows an increase in coolant flow as well as surface area which improves cooling for better consistency and performance.
The O-ring design eliminates the need to use a gasket. You can swap chambers without the cost of replacing gaskets.
