Made from compressed aramid fiber with buna-n nitrile binder. (Except the 28-31 PICT variant)
What does this mean? It means that the gaskets are naturally non-stick, insulating from excess manifold heat and can withstand sustained temperatures of 520° F with a max temperature rating of 700° F.
These gaskets are made right here in our facility in Hobe Sound, Florida from USA based gasket material suppliers. No outsourcing or paying companies to manufacture these. Removing the middlemen keeps the cost down and provide you with a high quality high performance gasket for the equivalent cost of a standard paper gasket.
To make sure these don't stick apply a light coat of chapstick to each side of the gasket.
If you're installing phenolic insulators, a gasket is needed for each side of the insulator.
