By combining our experience with our enormous range of materials, AG is able to offer the construction industry the certainty of receiving only the best material for your application, regardless of brand. We understand the demands this industry faces to minimise costs whilst not compromising on quality and strive to help you achieve this by offering a wide range of options, coupled with our full fabrication facilities, flexible delivery and invoicing options and the ability to have your goods specially packaged, labelled or supplied in kits to minimise wastage and labour.
The sections below highlight just some of our products that may be of use for the construction industry. More information on each is available in the products section of our website or by contacting your local AG office.
AG’s comprehensive range of rubber elastomer materials allows us to be certain we have all common construction applications covered. This collection of materials includes our highly economical, general-purpose Neoprene rubber that is used in a range of structural supports, vibration dampening and sealing applications as well as other common grades such as EPDM, Nitrile, Natural Rubber Insertion (NRI) and Silicone. AG offers all these materials by the roll or metre and will be happy to assist in providing custom slit rolls or cut components to suit your particular application.
With a range that includes numerous common and specialised grades of Nylon, Acetyl, HDPE, UHMWPE, PETP, Polycarbonate, Acrylic, PVC and PTFE; AG has the stock, knowledge and facilities to offer you the exact component you require. Whether it is spacing shims, cut components or machined parts you need, we’ll work with you to provide the very best solution for your application.
All of AG’s range of plastic sheet, shim, rod or tubes can be supplied in raw material or fully fabricated component form. Parts can be reproduced from used samples, sketches or drawings on short lead times. This is also combined with the fact that there’s almost never a minimum order quantity for plastic parts from AG which allows you to order just the quantity you need for your application.
For applications that require a tough, long lasting yet compressible material, AG has a range of closed or open cell foams and sponges. We carry these materials in an enormous range of thicknesses and can offer them with or without adhesive backings which can be applied to match the needs of your application. Materials are widely available based on Neoprene, EPDM or Silicone rubbers with other, even more specialised, versions also offered when required.
Seals, Mouldings & Extrusions
AG’s range of rubber seals, mouldings and extrusions has been carefully selected to match the needs of the most frequently occurring size requirements and application conditions. Seals can be produced out of almost any of our rubber (e.g. silicone, neoprene, nitrile, EPDM, Viton), plastic or sponge materials allowing you to choose the best material for your application.
We couple this capability with extensive stock or most common (and many uncommon) sizes of seals, extruded profiles and sections which are all available for quick delivery.
For our customers in the construction industry, AG’s range of gasket tapes have proven to be a cost effective and time saving option for fastening a seal between a range of different surfaces. Our range includes high quality solid and expanded PTFE tapes as well as custom slit solid rubber rolls, corks and adhesive backed sponges in various sizes and thicknesses.
AG also offers a number of highly specialised gasket tapes (such as our graphite ribbon range) which are often slit to width by AG to deliver the exact component you require.
Rubber bonded cork offers a combination of performance and cost effectiveness that is hard to ignore. As an agent for world-leader Amorim, AG’s range of cork sheets are of the highest quality which ensures long lasting performance. Our cork sheets are used in a variety of sound and vibration absorption, sealing and spacing applications and we’ll be happy to help you select the most appropriate product for your application’s requirements.
Of course, like the rest of our range of sealing materials, AG offers our cork materials in both raw material and fully fabricated form. Cut gaskets and components, dovetailed strips and even long length cork rolls can all be supplied by AG in a range of sizes and grades. These often represent a highly economical alternative to cutting on site and AG will be happy to work with you to identify components we may be able to supply that will increase efficiency without overly limiting the versatility associated with sheet stock.
Compressed fibre materials are designed for sealing a wide range of temperatures, pressures and chemicals; though each grade does different things well. With over 45 years of experience in helping select the best material for a given application, AG is happy to assist in identifying optimum materials and combines this willingness to assist with our brand independence so that you can be sure that you really are getting what’s best for you, not us. Large stock of compressed fibre gaskets for standard flanges are held in all of AG’s branches in a range of materials whilst our extensive fabrication facilities can produce non-standard items on short lead times.
In addition to this range of fibre gaskets, AG is also proud to offer an extensive selection of finished gaskets. This range includes our spiral wound gaskets, RTJs, Flange Isolation Kits, Kammprofile and many, many more. Many different styles, varieties, sizes and materials are held in stock whilst others can be produced to suit custom sized flanges and applications.
Heat is an unavoidable reality in many construction environments and AG has the products to help protect personnel and equipment from it. Whether you require custom made welding blankets, insulating tapes, ropes or lagging, we have you covered. We can help you protect against temperatures ranging past 1600ºC and offer custom fabricated thermal components to suit the exact dimensional and performance requirements of your application.
Acoustic insulation products provide for noise reduction from the outside, as well as within the interior of the building. When you require either permanent or temporary sound dampening, AG can offer a selection of materials capable of providing the silence you seek. We’ve got a diverse range of batts and foams with excellent acoustic insulation properties that will suit all your needs. Couple this with our commitment to custom solutions so that exact size, adhesive backed components can be provided wherever they’re needed.
