Stephens Gaskets has been a leading expert in manufacturing foil shims including copper foil, since the late 1940’s. In this time, has established a professional and knowledgeable team to sell high quality products to customers within different working sectors.
What is copper foil?
Copper foil is made up of flexible, thin precision strips supplied in various thicknesses to be used in a wide range of industries such as engineering, packaging and aerospace. The use of this foil is also popular in circuit boards, cable wraps and roofing.
Copper foil has similar properties to shims, and is often used as a more cost effective substitute. The strong and durable properties of shim foils, mean they too, can fill the gaps between two components in machinery, taking all the wear and tear instead of the engineered parts.
Where can I buy Copper Foil?
Here at Stephens Gaskets, we have a variety of pre-cut standard sizes of shim foil, however, should you need something a little more specific, our fast and reliable bespoke service is available to produce the product more suitable to your requirements.
Our foil thicknesses range from 0.005mm to 1mm and with our state of the art equipment, we are able to produce bulk quantities of the shim foils quickly and efficiently. Stephens Gaskets are proud of the fast turnaround for orders and their deliveries, which is made easier by our own personal delivery vehicles.
As a leading shim foil manufacturer, we can be trusted to produce and cut your products to the highest of standards professionally and safely, as an alternative to trying to make shim foils yourself; which can often lead to inconsistent thicknesses.
