Over Fifty Years of Experience

Stephen’s Gaskets is a leading manufacturing company that specialise in creating high quality steel shims and washers for different types of machinery and devices. With over fifty years of experience under our belts, we have developed an in-depth understanding of the mechanical world, and we are proud to be able to manufacture and supply not only in the UK, but across the globe to a wide range of industries.

Greater Precision

Why choose steel shims over any of our other products?

They have many advantages, for one thing, by leaving the manufacturing up to a company like Stephens Gaskets, you will save time, and you will receive a product that can boast a much greater thickness precision, meaning that they will fit your needs perfectly. The thickness will also be even throughout, with it being both undistorted and flat. Safety is obviously a major concern, so leaving it to the professionals will give you peace of mind that the shims will perform as they are meant to.

Long Lasting

They are very popular due to their strength and versatility, especially as our shim steel contains a large amount of chromium, which creates a protective layer preventing surface corrosion and rusting. The durability within means that they will not only protect corrosion within the device or machinery, but it will also stay in good condition itself, reducing the likelihood of having to buy replacements.

Available in Packs & Cans

With Stephens Gaskets, you can also choose the thickness of your shims, which are pre-cut to the desired size and are available in various packs and cans.
