Portlite gasket material

All of the gaskets on the portlites of our 1990 MT need replacing. The portlites are stainless steel, made by Jai Hai (?). The material is a solid black square rubber extrusion about 1/2" x 1/2". Any idea where I might be able to find some replacement material?

Thanks!

Windows are not very robust and distort easily , so the hollow rubber is used to make less pressure required to seal.

Or if a fool cranks down hard on only one dog ,marine rubber may help.
