Stephens Gaskets are manufacturers of many products here in the UK, one in particular is brass foil. Our foil is a thin, pliable material. It can be used in many different industries due to its mouldable, yet durable properties. We sell our foil in four different varieties; aluminium, stainless steel, copper and brass.
What Can Brass Foils Be Used For?
All the foil we stock can be used for tooling, storage and packaging applications. Brass foil, is commonly used in electrical engineering, however its reddish brown colour encourages more unique uses such as in musical instruments, arts and crafts, and architecture. Brass foils also has the ability to be folded and rolled into finely cut strips. Therefore, making them valuable contributors to the engineering and aerospace sectors.
Foil can also be used to fill space between two components similar to the purpose of a shim, particularly within machinery. Like the purpose of a shim, the shim foil can help to avoid wear and tear on engineered components, and improve the lifespan of the mechanism. Foil is very cheap in comparison to other engineering equipment, so it can be more economical to replace shim foil rather than stronger industrial equipment.
