In the case of making gaskets, its more a sense of knowing the quality of the material you're using, and also being able to port match the gaskets better.
You're 100% correct, the material I used for these gaskets is a high quality material that is resistant to oil, fuel, & water, its easy to work with because it is very fleable but it is also tough enough to stay together and form a nice seal, I sprayed the base gasket with Copper Coat and I always use the Permatex High Tack sealant on my intake gaskets.
