    Specific Gravity: 1.5
    Shelf Life: Much longer than asbestos sheet
    Temperature Limit: 750°F* (399°C)
    Pressure: 1400 psi (99 BAR) @ 750°F
    Sealability: 0,7 ml/hr
    Chloride Content: 100 ppm max
    Compressibility: 7 – 17% (ASTM F-36A)
    Recovery: 50% (Minimum)
    *Typical values derived from tests performed using 1/16" thick material

    It is very very smooth on one side feels like rigid rubberized cloth -without the elasticity is the only way I can think to describe it. I will try to find out more info.
    It is used to seal in toxic chemicals and hi pressure steam they use it where ever there is joint
    "no not that joint" :) . What temp do these bikes reach? 700° on a bad day?

    Is this gasket material available commercially, or does your brother just make it for his own use?

    Cereal boxes make good gaskets with an exacto knife to cut it out.

    If it's hi-temp gasket material for industrial application than probably nomex fiber/nitrile like garlock blue gard or palmetto supersheet. Your lucky if you you can get small pieces from your bro because both are expensive and hard to get in small sheets.
