An aluminium shim can be used to bridge the gap between loose machinery parts.

Client satisfaction is the most important thing to us here at Stephen’s Gaskets. We value all of our loyal customers who usually come from specialist classic car backgrounds, and large industrial companies who manufacture engines.

Benefits of Using an Aluminium Shim
