MYLAR shims have a definite advantage over traditional shims by being extremely light.
The sheet has a total thickness of 1 mm and can easily be peeled off in 0.1 mm layers to the required thickness.
This eliminates problems arising from adjustment of shim thickness.

With increasing globalisation, service and maintenance crews find themselves operating worldwide.
As weight continues to play an important role in air travel, MYLAR shims have proved to be ideal for use in global applications.
