If you are not matching any impedances, you are still better off asking them what stackup they would recommend, because you may not know what brands of material they use or regularly stock.

Subject: Re: [PEDA] CORE THICKNESSES
The standard thickness of core material depends on who makes the laminates used by your fab.
If your fab can't make the board to your required dimensions, you need to call around and see what other fabs can get/do.
An example of available material from one laminate manufacturer can be seen at:
A table of available laminates can be seen in design guidelines from a fab at:
Finished thickness for prepreg and some cores can be different from the raw thickness as supplied. When heated and pressed in the laminating press, some reduction in thickness of the individual layers tends to occur. The data sheet from the laminate manufacturer gives the raw and finished thicknesses. Again, the best source of information is from the fab. If you're controlling impedance, the finished thickness data is essential for modeling stripline and microstrip characteristics.

is there a table of standard core thicknesses somewhere?
i have a 6 layer stackup
top prepreg sig core gnd prepreg pwr core sig prepreg bott
and am trying to hit 062" overall thickness within +-005
what are all the material thickness possibilities out there? (well maybe not ALL of them :) )
given 007 prepreg and 021 cores my vendor tells me that once you add the copper thickness at 1oz the overall is about 071" thick
sounds like 017 cores would do it, but that also sounds like a wierd number
thanks for any help
