Apart from our Polymex® plastic shim, we also specialise in the supply of precision manufactured thin metals. Materials offered range from Shim Steel, Stainless, Brass, Aluminium and other various grades.
Solid metal gaskets are used in applications where temperatures and pressures rule out the use of traditional gasket materials. In general, gasket compression loads need to be high to deform the gasket, and the metal used for the gasket should be softer than the metal in the mating surfaces.
Our wide range of metal foils start at 0.005mm and goes up to 3.000mm, it is manufactured to the tightest available tolerance on thickness.
Our other popular metal shims are peel able laminations offered in various thicknesses to a ensure flush fit.
Each machined metal shim gives a customer the advantage of decreased time and labour cost and ultimately reduced machine downtime.
For industrial requirements, shims come in a variety of styles. These include round, slotted, disc, notched, horseshoe and tabbed shims. Custom shapes and thicknesses can be manufactured by using our wide trade conversion capability to complete thicker or bespoke requirements, and deliver to many overseas customers.
