Is this head gasket useable

New ROL sbc head gasket with slight damage to the orange bead seal. Is this gasket useable? Motor is 9.8 static compression.

I would use a very small bead about the same size as present of non hardening sealer and let it rip. You could also likely use RVT without a problem.
