isnt the head gasket made like a sandwich? eg copper what evers in the middle the copper, then punched out?

Cheers Steve

quote from Wiki
Composite -- an older technology. Typically these are made from asbestos or graphite but are more prone to blowouts than newer gaskets. Asbestos gaskets are becoming increasingly rare due to health concerns.[2]

modern stuff is compressive gasket material, the copper helps to keep it all together under the duress of its duties, the material is a modern composite, probably containing things like silica/silicon (glass) and other high temperature fibres.
