RS PRO White Plastic Shim 457 mm x 305 mm x 0.19 mm

Adaptability to different environments makes Plastic Shim popular material used in engineering for shimming and insulation applications worldwide. No surprise as to why Shims are the first choice for a reliable and durable material, allowing you to control thickness spacing for your BIG and small project.

Today, we are proudly introducing our own branded RS PRO White Plastic Shim offering you different performance characteristics than metal, such as folding endurance, chemical resistance or tensile strength to break.

The Plastic Shim goes even beyond that, and thanks to the straightforward concept that different thickness indicates the other colour, you can eliminate the need to use a micrometre.
