Shim stock comes in flat-packed sheets. You can cut it with only a ruler, a diver, and scissors, saving time and material. Our metal shim stock is safer to handle because it won’t dangerously uncurl as rolled stock does.

Industry leaders worldwide depend on Artus for exceptional quality and short lead times.

The Color Tells the Thickness:
Color-coded products are available in aluminum and plastic for your convenience. Each color represents a specific thickness, so distinguishing between thicknesses is a quick and easy task. Shim thickness can vary as little as 0.00025”. Differentiating by color instead of measuring shim stock can drastically save time and reduces errors.
