This paper discusses the gasket testing procedure HPIS Z104 to obtain fundamental sealing behavior of gasket established in Japan. The testing procedure consists of 11 combinations of gasket stresses and a constant internal pressure. It takes about 3 hours to complete one test, which is acceptable for gasket manufacturers. In order to demonstrate the validity of the testing procedure, measurements of leak rates of compressed fiber sheet gaskets were carried out. It has shown that the fundamental sealing behavior can be well characterized using the proposed testing procedure with reasonable time and cost.
