How Can Stock Gaskets Put a Strain on Your Profits?

Custom Gaskets

Whether your business relies on small machinery or automobiles, the strain you put on your devices eventually will result in the need for new gaskets. Gaskets are extremely delicate components of your devices, and they need to be perfectly fitted to your needs to ensure a flawless seal. Failure to do so could lead to a catastrophic failure of the device, often leaving you with no choice but to junk the entire thing. This is a huge problem that could cause a major drain on your business revenue. To prevent this, your gaskets need to be not only made from top-of-the-line materials, but custom-fitted to your needs by a quality gasket manufacturer.

 

Stock Gaskets Don’t Cut It

 

You might be tempted to go for a stock gasket when you need a new one, thinking that you’ll be able to get your machine back in working condition more cheaply. While cheap stock gaskets may seem like the less expensive option, you need to look at the bigger picture.

 

Stock gaskets are little more than a cheap template that you’ll need to fit to your machinery yourself. In order to ensure that you don’t get a bad seal, you’ll have to use up a ton of manpower time fitting the gasket to your machine perfectly - time that could be better spent doing literally anything else in your business.

 

Additionally, there’s no guarantee that the stock gasket will even fit your machine perfectly. You could end up wasting hours of time getting it to fit, only to get a bad seal and a crack in your gasket that could ruin an entire engine. Suddenly, the so-called cheap option has cost you thousands of dollars.
