Services Offered at Associated Gaskets Wollongong
Our Wollongong branch is much more than just a warehouse in Unanderra. The real reason it exists is to provide personal, local service to all our customers all over the Illawarra and down to Canberra and the ACT.
Below are just some of the services provided by our Wollongong team. This is a summary only, they’re really there to help in any way they can.
Product Advice and Suggestions
One of the best things about our job is getting to help people solve problems. We really enjoy finding new solutions for new applications, or identifying the best product for a particular need.
While we will continue to publish product information and videos on our site, sometimes there’s no substitute for personalised advice and service.
Our Wollongong team have a wealth of experience with all kinds of sealing, insulating, bonding and many other types of applications and would be very glad to help you find a solution to fit your needs. Whether you’re looking for a lining material for a very high temperature oven, an exhaust manifold gasket material, or a threadlocker able to withstand 200°C, we can help.
We understand how urgent some requirements are. Waiting for goods to come down from Sydney can sometimes simply not be an option. That’s a big part of why we have our branches, to keep local stock available to help all of our customers out when things can’t wait.
Associated Gaskets Wollongong keeps a huge range of different materials in stock. Everything from gasket and sealing materials to different types of thermal and electrical insulation, adhesives, tapes and safety products are kept on hand. We’ll be the first to admit that not everything is in stock, but a large amount is.
If you need one of our products quickly, the branch is a great place to start. On the off-chance they don’t have it on the shelf, they’ll do their best to get it to you as quickly as possible and, if it’s an item you’ll use again and again, we can look to keep it locally for you.
To check if a particular size of item is in stock, please do contact our Wollongong team.
Sample Identification, Measurement and Reverse-Engineering
Sometimes, all you have to work from is the old part. This can be true with a blown-out gasket, an insulator out of a motor, or what’s left of a boiler door seal. No matter, if you can bring in your old sample, we’ll be happy to help identify the material, measure it up and produce a new one.
With our years of experience, we’re used to the challenges of working from less than perfect samples and can help compensate for missing parts or identify alternatives to older materials that are no longer made. We’re also not afraid to get our hands dirty and will be more than happy to help measure and inspect the item.
Whether you need a couple of new gaskets or a couple of hundred, our Wollongong team is here to help work out what material and size you need, and get you your new ones as soon as possible.
For some jobs, bringing in a sample isn’t really practical. We understand. When you need someone to come out and help measure a flange or identify a material that’s still in service, our team can help with that as well.
For years, Associated Gaskets Wollongong has been conducting regular visits to all of our customers in the surrounding region. These can often be arranged urgently to help with breakdowns or other time-sensitive needs.
We’re more than happy to get our hands dirty and really enjoy having the opportunity to see first-hand some of the amazing uses people have come up with for our products. To arrange a visit from one of our experienced team, please do get in contact today.
