Boker's is a metal stamping manufacturer of steel shims. Steel is an alloy consisting mostly of iron, with a carbon content range between .08% and .13%, depending on grade. Steel options provide the most diverse group of alloys and applications of all metals. It is often thought that there is a steel alloy available to manufacture just about any product. The primary concern with steel is that it has poor corrosion resistance. However, its relatively low cost makes it a common choice.
The most common low carbon steel alloy specified from Boker's for manufacturing shims is steel AISI 1008/1010. It's believed this is due to it's original popularity within the automotive industry. However, with Boker's immediate access to over 2,000 materials you have the ability to specify the exact steel necessary for your application.
General alternative steel materials to consider:
- Steel 1008/1010 Shims (low carbon steel shims)
- Spring Steel Shims (low alloy, high carbon steel shims)
- Stainless Steel Shims (corrosion resistant steel shims)
