Just about any automotive place will sell gasket paper, you can buy it in sheets or rolls depending on how much you need. It comes in varying thicknesses but I usually use .4mm which is about .016".

A couple of trade names for the material I use are Klingersil and Novus45

 I make all my own gaskets, 0.4 & 0.8mm are the two thicknesses I use. 0.8 on that one.
