colour coded shim material provides easy, reliable and fast recognition of
their thickness by their colour. There is no need to use a micrometer thus
saving on time and costs and providing greater dependability on assembly and
improving of the quality of the finished product.
applications plastic shims, can replace metal due to the improved technology
in providing perfomance characteristics which differ from those of metal,
e.g. folding endurance, chemical resistance, tensile strength to break, etc.
Plastic shims also cost less than metal which adds to their cost
