A shim is a thin piece of metal used as a wedge to fill small spaces or gaps between two objects or surfaces that normally join. Shims can also be used to make a surface flush or level. Brass shim is often used where a level of stiffness is still required. It is also useful in applications where corrosion problems can occur. Brass shim is cold rolled to a half hard temper. Brass shim can easily be stamped, bored, cut, milled, sheared and drilled to suit most applications.
Brass shim is versatile and it is primarily used in industries like construction, automotive, heavy machinery, milling and plumbing. It can also be used in hobby applications for model trains and aeroplanes.
