Offered in sheet or cut component form, AG has one of Australia’s largest ranges of gasket materials. Our brand independence means we’re able to offer the very best material for your application, regardless of manufacturer. We couple this flexibility with extensive stocks of a range of different materials, many of which are stocked in extra-large sheets to enable one-piece fabrication of large gaskets and components.
In addition to our range of quality compressed fibre materials, AG also offers a variety of graphite or PTFE based materials. The graphite based sheets are designed specifically for high temperature applications with a number of grades also featuring metallic reinforcements to increase their resistance to pressure. Conversely, the PTFE based materials offer outstanding resistance to chemicals and have a long service life, in even the harshest of sealing environments.
