individual layers bonded across the entire surface
Peelable precision shims made of laminated plastic consist of multiple layers of thin laminated plastic foil that are laid over each other like lamellae and bonded across the entire surface of each (laminated). They are used in the same manner as laminated shim stock: The individual layers are peeled off little by little until the thickness necessary for tolerance adjustment has been reached. Precision shims made of laminated plastic have the advantage of being especially lightweight. The use of precision and slotted shims made of laminated plastic is advantageous if assembly weight reduction plays an important role.
Laminated plastic precision shims are substantially easier to handle than laminated shim stock made of metallic materials. The edges of the individual layers are not as sharp and peeling them can therefore be done by hand without tools. This saves a great deal of time in application and minimizes the risk of injury. The layers that are peeled of can be reused in other applications.
