    The concept of formed-in-place gaskets is an attractive one. The ability to make any size and shape of gasket on the spot and the low inventory involved has prompted many to try the formed-in-place principle at one time or another. However, failures have occurred because of an incomplete understanding of the mechanics of formed-in-place joints. These mechanics are discussed along with application methods for formed-in-place materials.
