Shimco to Exhibit Polyimide-Based Shims at HELIEXPO 2013

The exhibition will be held March 5 through 7, 2013 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

MARKHAM, Ontarioo (February 20, 2013) – Shimco announced today their participation at HELIEXPO taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada from March 5-7, 2013. In booth N6408, the company will showcase samples of its polyimide-based shims in addition to some of its extensive range of custom manufactured products of solid, laminated, edgebond, and tapered shims, laminated sheets and precision machined parts.

HELI-EXPO is where the world of vertical aviation connects. More than 20,000 helicopter industry professionals will be attending the world’s largest helicopter exposition and trade show. ELIEXPO
is produced by the Helicopter Association International (HAI), of which Shimco has been a member for many years.

Designed with polyimide film material produced by DuPont and Kaneka, the Shimco polyimidebased shims are laminated on-site at the company’s manufacturing facility in Canada. Polyimide films have a unique combination of electrical, thermal, chemical and mechanical properties that withstand extreme temperature, vibration and other demanding environments, but also provide a weight-saving dvantage over similar metallic products.

Peter Voss, President of Shimco, states, “We look forward to exhibiting at HELI-EXPO again this year, as it provides a unique opportunity for us to engage with many of our existing partners from industry-leading companies, and to connect with new businesses. This year we will be showcasing our polyimide-based shims, which were introduced to the market
last year and have already proven successful in aircraft designs and assembly.”

HELI-EXPO attendees are invited to drop by the Shimco booth and examine the collection of shim and precision machined parts samples that will be on display.
