We are proud to serve a number of high profile businesses across a variety of industries including aviation (both civil and military), automotive, shipbuilding and our products are exported to companies across the globe. 


Our robust inspection processes and procedures ensure products are manufactured to the highest quality standards and each is available with release certificates if required.  


Please see our website or contact us for further details of our products and services and to discuss in detail how we can assist your organisation.

Plastic Shims

Our plastic shims are manufactured to cope with working temperatures of between 60OC to 110OC and have a compressive strength of 8,000 to 25,000lbs of force psi.  By fabricating shims from plastic, retention of thickness and smoothness is achievable under normal working conditions, plus they are the perfect solution for oil seals as the oil will not penetrate the plastic shim.  We offer two standard sheet sizes, 6”x24” and 12”x24”, in a range of thicknesses from 0.001” to 0.060”, each thickness having its own colour to assist with easy identification.


Contact Shimpack for all your pressing needs.  We are available to undertake pressings in a wide selection of metals and are able to offer customers a fast turnaround for work both on existing pressings and also brand new tooling, simply send us through your drawings or samples and we’ll do the rest.
