A thin flat metal or plastic item of various peripheral shapes having a solid or laminated cross-section. It is designed to maintain a predetermined distance between two surfaces. For round items without a hole and having a solid rectangular cross-section use disk, solid, plain. Items with either (1) a solid (not laminated) cross-section, or (2) a non-separable laminated cross-section with one hole centrally located, must have a thickness less than 0.006 inch (0.152 mm) for items less than 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) outside diameter or shortest distance across peripheral flats, and less than 0.016 inch (0.406 mm) for items 1/4 inch (6.35 mm) or more outside diameter, or shortest distance across peripheral flats. for items with thickness greater than those indicated above, see spacer, plate; washer, flat and spacer, ring. when thickness and/or outside diameter or shortest distance across peripheral flats is designated as a tolerance dimension, the maximum dimension will be used to determine compliance. See also shim stock, laminated; shim stock assortment, gasket; and bearing, washer, thrust.
Packing shall be accomplished to meet the performance test requirements of astm-d4169, distribution cycle 18, assurance level 1.
Packing shall be accomplished in accordance with table c.ii for the packing level specified. closure, sealing and reinforcement shall be in accordance with the appropriate shipping container specification.
All packaging data is mandatory for compliance and no substitutions are permitted. fast packs should be included in this category.
No special marking.
OPI: Optional Procedure Indicator Code. A one position alpha code that indicates the allowable deviations from the prescribed requirements.
SPI No.: Special packaging instructions number.
LVL A/B/C: Indicates the type of shipping container required for level A, B, or C maximum packing protection.
SPC Mkg: A two position code that identifies the special markings applied to the container, which is part of the total pack to protect the contained item during preservation, packing, storage, transit and removal from the pack.
Indicates there is no data in the hmirs and the nsn is in a fsc not generally suspected of containing hazardous materials.
Item does not contain precious metal.
The item does not have a nuclear hardened feature or any other critical feature such as tolerance, fit restriction or application.
HMIC: Hazardous Material Indicator Code. A one position code that identifies a hazardous item.
PMIC: Precious Metal Indicator Code. A one position code which identifies items that have precious metals as part of their content. precious metals are those metals generally considered to be uncommon, highly valuable, and relatively superior in certain properties such as resistance to corrosion and electrical conductivity.
ESD: Electrostatic Discharge. Indicates if an item is susceptible to electrostatic discharge or electromagnetic interference damage. electrostatic discharge damage occurs when an accumulation of static electricity generated by the relative motion or separation of materials is released to another item by direct contact. electromagnetic interference damage occurs when an item comes into proximity with an electrostatic or magnetic field.
ENAC: Enviromental Attribute Code. Identifies items with environmentally preferred characteristics.
CRITL: Criticality Indicator Code. Indicates an item is technically critical by tolerance, fit, application, nuclear hardness properties, or other characteristics.

SOS: Source of Supply. A three position code or routing identifier code (ric), which identifies the source of supply activity.
SMIC: Special Material Indicator Code. A two position code, which categorizes material on the basis of requirements for source or quality control, technical design or configuration control, procurement, stocking and issue control, special receipt, inspection, testing, storage, or handling.
MMAC: Material Management Aggregation Code. A two position code that identifies an item of supply to be managed by a specific activity manager.
MCC: Material Echelon Code. A two position code employed by the marine corps in classifying items into categories by materiel category and procurement echelon. the alphanumeric management code is in the first position and identifies the materiel category
IMC: Denotes wether items shall be subjected to integrated management under the defense supply agency or retained by the individual military service or other department of defense components for their management. Assigned by th activity responsible for item management coding.
