SAE AMS 6387:2003 pdf download Steel, Carbon, Laminated Sheet, Surface Bonded
1.1 Form:
This specification covers steel in the form of laminated sheet.
1.2 Application:
This material has been used typically for shims in which thickness is adjusted by removal of
laminations as required, but usage is not limited to such applications.
1.3 Classification:
Materials are classified as follows:
1.3.1 Type:
Type I – All laminations
Type II – One half laminations
Type III – Three quarters laminations
1.3.2 Class:
Class 1 – 0.002 inch (0.05 mm) thick laminations
Class 2 – 0.003 inch (0.075 mm) thick laminations

3.1 Composition:
3.1.1 Laminations: Shall conform to AMS 5040, AMS 5042, AMS 5044 or AMS 5047.
3.1.2 Adhesive: Shall be of a composition which will meet the fabrication and quality requirements of this
3.2 Fabrication:
The laminated shim stock shall consist completely of laminations each 0.002 ± 0.0002 inch (0.05 ± 0.005 mm) thick or 0.003 ± 0.0003 inch (0.08 ± 0.008 mm) thick, or partly of such laminations combined with a single thicker lamination, as ordered, bonded together by an adhesive such that individual laminations may be peeled for adjustment of shim thickness. The thickness of each layer of adhesive shall not exceed 0.0003 inch (0.008 mm).
3.2.1 Sheet shall be of the thicknesses and combinations of laminations and solid base shown in Table 1.
3.3 Construction:
3.3.1 General Requirements: Laminations and solid stock, when applicable, shall be bonded together throughout the whole surface area in a manner which will permit peeling of the laminations without the aid of mechanical devices, for adjustment of shim thickness, without separation of the remaining laminations and solid part. Laminations shall be bonded together in such a manner that any shape can be cut from the material using suitable tools, without separation. Laminations shall remain intact without separation during normal handling. Requirements shall be applicable to laminations not less than eight hours after completion of bonding.
