Are other colours available?
Unfortunately, no. We can only offer this particular type of plastic shim in the colours listed for each thickness.
Can it bend?
Yes. Plastic Shim is generally very flexible. The exact amount of resistance you can expect depends on the thickness (thicker = harder to roll) but all can bend and roll as required.
What does high impact strength mean?
Precise definition is a little technical and can be found here (Wikipedia). To summarise though, it’s basically how much sudden force a material can absorb without fracturing. You can think of it like how hard you’d have to hit it with a hammer to break it. The higher the impact strength, the harder you’d have to hit it.
