Peel-away or Laminated shims have different layers of metal which can be removed until the right thickness of the shim is achieved. They are built up with layer after layer of precise gauge metal foil. The peelable Shim layers are bonded into a rigid structure that appear and function as a solid sheet or plate. Adjusting them is as easy as peeling off laminations with a tool. Laminated Shims are produced by surface-bonding layers of precision-metal foils or composite films and resin adhesive into sheets. The foils can be aluminum, stainless steel, carbon steel, and brass, among others.
