Types of Gaskets

There are three common types of head gaskets in cars today. Steel gaskets are made with layered steel and are the most common gaskets used. Copper gaskets are also very common and are known to be extremely durable because of how they are manufactured. They are made from a sheet of copper that is made in specialized machines that adds wire around the edge of the cylinder which strengthens the material. Composite gaskets are not as common anymore because they are made from asbestos or graphite. Because of the health concerns surrounding asbestos, manufacturers have switched to safer and longer lasting materials.
