gasket

Explanation:
A gasket is a mechanical seal which fills the space between two or more mating surfaces, generally to prevent leakage from or into the joined objects while under compression. Gaskets allow for "less-than-perfect" mating surfaces on machine parts where they can fill irregularities. Gaskets are commonly produced by cutting from sheet materials.

neutral  Ramzan Nizam: جوان equals to gasket, but not sure about the meaning of مضرب here, found somewhere 'paddle' as an equivalent of مضرب.
