Benefits of INTERCOMPOSITE® laminated shims

Lightness

As an answer to a weight saving requirement. INTERCOMPOSITE® is one of the lightest of laminated materials.

Material Specific weight Weight-saving
INTERCOMPOSITE® 1.395  
Aluminum 2.8 2.01 x

Good physical, mechanical, thermal and chemical characteristics

INTERCOMPOSITE® is twice as light as aluminum and is an excellent thermal insulator. See the tables of characteristics here below.

Anti-fretting

INTERCOMPOSITE® is a total barrier against the galvanic coupling caused by surface contact of different metallic alloys. No further surface treatment is required.

Adaptation to curved shapes

INTERCOMPOSITE® has the property to immediately adapt itself to most curves profiles without any loss of precision. And this can be performed in site.

Facility and rapidity of use

You can peel INTERCOMPOSITE® with your forefinger (no tools being necessary) and once peeled the sheets are reusable.

Safety

INTERCOMPOSITE® is easily peeled without risk of finger cuts.

Low cost

INTERCOMPOSITE® is the least expensive of all our laminated materials.

Smart and Economical

Once peeled, the sheets remain fl at and show no signs of deformation. They can thus be re-used and can serve as single-unit shimming parts.
