metal shim / edge-bonded
The layers of an Edge Bonded Shim set are first pressed together, and then adhered by only the edges of the Shim’s profile. This allows for easy separation of the layers in the field. Since Edge Bonded Shims are easy to peel, the layers that are not needed are preserved and can be used for a later application. Edge Bonded Shim Sets have all the performance and cost advantages of solid and loose Shims, yet they provide a unique solution for companies seeking a better point-of-use adjustable Shim set.
Edge Bonded Shims also provide cost saving advantages over Laminated Shims because the materials are less expensive. Edge Bonded Shim packs offer safe adjustment in seconds rather than time consuming and potentially difficult to peel surface bonded laminates.
