Your ok, for now. The clutch material is just over a mil. when new I think. Don't know the exact spec but, don't worry about it.

You are fine. It is very little to the naked eye to begin with.

According to the Haynes manual clutch plate thickness (overall plate including both sides of friction material plus the 'carrier' plate) should be 3mm with a service limit of 2.8mm or 2.5mm/2.3mm for the 'SPS' sintered plates but I'm sure they'll be fine as long as you have some material left.

Actually 1mm of friction sounds like a nearly new plate to me...

My thoughts as well.
