Shims are used in a variety of industries because of the relatively low cost of the part. Shims are used to fit a gap or space to ensure a proper fit. By using this one part, you are able to avoid custom manufacturing each piece of the object. In addition, shims can reduce production costs by reducing tolerances between metals. Brass shims are used in situations when sparks need to be avoided, which is especially relevant in equipment fittings.
You can order corrosion-resistant brass shims from Phoenix Specialty. We understand the importance of this factor in your production.
Choose your grade of brass for your shim application. We offer a wide range of brass shim stock and have the ability to custom-make parts to your specifications in a timely manner at affordable prices. Some of the brass grades you may choose from include the following:
• 70/30 cartridge brass: widely available and common; has a warm yellow color when polished
• Guilding brass: very resistant to corrosion
• 85/15 red brass: more of a golden red hue, a low strength connectivity
