What are the Benefits of Plastic Shim Sheets?
Our plastic shim sheets are a highly popular shim material with our customers at Stephens Gaskets. Plastic shim material is extremely versatile, and can be used in a broad range of applications due to its vast range of properties. Plastic can withstand an extensive range of temperature tolerances as well as boasting an extremely high wear resistance. A plastic shim has a good corrosion resistance with a low co-efficient of friction. Plastic shims are very durable, long wearing and resist corrosion; they also do not absorb moisture making them one of the most common materials to use for shims and washers.
Plastic shims at Stephens Gaskets are available in a variety of different measurements to ensure we can provide mechanical solutions to as many different clients and applications as we can. Our plastic shim packs contain pre-cut shims fit-for-use but if you are looking for something a little more specific, we have a bespoke service too. Our bespoke service is on hand to create custom-made shims made to the customer’s exact requirements, here at Stephens Gaskets there is someone for everyone!
