Past, Present and Future of the Automotive Gasket Industry 800268

The official designation of a gasket as adopted by the ASTM F-3 Committee on Gaskets is the following statement: “A Gasket is considered to be a material which is clamped between faces and acts as a static seal.”
The gasket industry has been in existence for many years as evidenced by the utilization of gaskets from the advent of the industrial revolution, through the steam engine period, and from the beginning of the evolution of the internal combustion engine. Gaskets have been an integral part of the industry’s growth from its inception to current designs, and into the foreseeable future.
