They are better quality than plastic. Check quadratech or 4wd.

i userly put rtv on the valve cover side only so i can remove the vave cover without changing gaskets next time.

so the previous guy used black rtv i guess high temp but whatever and it only stuck to the valve cover and not the head. it was leaking 360 ...i used the right gasket and no leaks so far. do it right or dont do it at all..............
i also to put rtv on the valve cover side only to hold it in place. Otherwise it might get out of posistion and leak when installing. Old techs put grease on the opposite side so you can reuse it again. I use to do that on oil pan gaskets - RTV them to the block and put grease on the oil pan side. Old race car trick is to coat gaskets on both sides (to hold it in place and to reuse it again) with heavy grease, just a light smear. They will seal fine and are easily removed and reused that way without damaging them.
