I'd like to give this a try when my stock pads wear out.
I don't believe the shims sit "loose" between the pads and piston. The spray is very tacky, and I believe the addition of the "glue" between the pad and shim, then the shim and piston, helps to dampen out the clatter of the pad moving freely about the caliper.
