We Offer Custom Shims and Gaskets for Pumps and Valves

From automotive to mining, Artus precision shims and gaskets are ideal for sealing your pumps and valves. Our wear-resistant shims and gaskets are reliable and have allowed us to build our reputation as a leading supplier of high-quality gaskets for pumps and valves. Our manufacturing process allows us to offer your inherently cheaper, more consistent, and more reliable precision products. We can provide you with manufacturing solutions for pumps and valves, regardless of your application.

Just contact us, give us your blueprint specifications and tolerance requirements, and receive a perfect seal with our precision gaskets. After 80 years, our mission is still to help our customers excel by providing precision-cut shims and gaskets, competitive pricing, attentive customer service, and on-time deliveries.

Artus custom die-cut shims and gaskets are made in any size and shape, in a variety of thicknesses from 0.0005” to 0.060”, and in whatever quantity desired. Our gaskets can be made of vegetable fiber, cork composition, and asbestos-substitute gaskets. Visit our shim and gasket brochure to learn more.

Artus color-coded plastic shims and shim stock are also capable of producing a seal. Though not as strong as our other gasket material, plastic shims and gaskets are remarkably durable, rust-proof, non-hygroscopic, impervious to oil, and economical. Best of all, plastic shims are color-coded to save time. Contact us to learn more about our plastic shim sealing capabilities.

The Color Tells the Thickness

Each color of our plastic shims and gaskets represents a specific shim stock thickness, making distinguishing between thicknesses quick and easy. With variations in shim thickness being as little as 0.00025”, differentiating by color instead of measuring shims drastically saves time and reduces errors on the production floor.
