Liquid Shim

Liquid shims are epoxy-based materials that have extremely high compressive strengths and resist micro-cracking after exposure to a wide range of temperatures. Liquid shim material is used to eliminate gaps and differences between parts accommodating an imperfect fit between two substrates. Liquid shims provide a good balance between open assembly time and handling strength.

Two-component, ambient cure paste
Low slump, high compressive strength
Resistant to micro-cracking up to 2,000 thermal cycles
