ASTM F36-A Gasket sheet testing standard

I am procuring gasket sheet used at Refinery based equipments.
The detail of gasket is as follow:
Size: 2 meter X 1.5 meter X 1.5mm thick
Material: High quality compressed synthetic fibre based on Aramid/ glass/ carbon fibre with NBR bindre.
Type: Soft cut
Max Temp: 400 centigrade
Max Pressure: 40 bar
Specification: As per ASTM F-36 A

I have searched a lot to compare the values of compressibility and recovery as per ASTM F-36 A standard, but i am unable to find this(ASTM F36) standard on internet. I need to know the standard value of compressibility and recovery values as per this standard or any one who can share the chart of compresibility and recovery range in relation to my gasket.
