Subject: Synthetic Bearing Material

Hi engineers and sport fans,

Is there a synthetic bearing material like plastic that can be obtained in small thicknesses 1/8" to 3/8" for shimming wood members between concrete and steel and that is easier to cut in small pieces than steel? I saw something like that at a tilt up concrete wall construction site and they were using it to shim the wall level along the footing.

Thanks for any info you might have regarding this.
