Plastic shims have become increasingly recognised in engineering for shimming, spacing and insulation applications. The unique colour coding of plastic shim denotes the material thickness eliminating the need to use a micrometer. Plastic shim has excellent wear resistance with a high strength to weight ratio making in a popular alternative to metallic shimming materials.
Key Features: Plastic shims have good corrosion resistance and a low co-efficient of friction. This helps to prevent corrosion between dissimilar materials. It is also easily fabricated and safer to use than most standard shimming materials.
