Abstract : In the search for superior materials from which to make gaskets for pneumatic and hydraulic systems at the Kennedy Space Center, promising materials were selected from a number of vendors, and then tested. The testing was conducted in two phases. Those materials that passed the tests of Phase I were tested in Phase II and categorized in the order of their preference. jg p2
