A hybrid composite sealing gasket in a tri-layered composite is developed to mimic an elastomer-based compressive seal. The tri-layered composite seal consists of a reinforced fiber layer sandwiched by two reinforced platelet layers. The distribution of the fillers, i.e., the platelets and fibers, is determined, and the seal is shown to undergo 100 thermal cycles with little degradation in performance.
