Plastic Shims

Colour coded from polyester films to meet the particular demands of the engineering, automotive, electrical, electronic industries.  Plastic packing shims are remarkably tough with very high compression and dielectric strengths, very low water absorption excellent dimensional stability over a wide range of temperatures and good resistance to most chemicals, ozone, direct sunlight etc.
