Punched gaskets contain holes for bolts or fasteners. They are used to seal and protect surfaces when two metal surfaces need to be joined and to seal out water and contaminants. Punched gaskets are also used in EMI shielding to protect electronics. Punching and die cutting are difference processes, but these rubber gaskets are sometimes called die cut gaskets.
