Stainless Steel Flat Washer
Washers, commonly used to distribute load in a threaded fastener joint, act as a spacer, reduce vibration and in some cases act as a protective barrier.  They are available standard inch or metric, military grade, in different thicknesses, diameters and hole sizes.  Available in stainless steel, washers resist corrosion and are typically used in conjunction with stainless steel bolts and nuts.

Stainless steel is a well-known steel alloy that is prized for its ability to resist corrosion and rust.  It is widely used in many industries and products – think cutlery, food processing and preparation equipment, medical instruments, marine products, refrigerators, freezers, and washing machines.  Stainless steel is also widely used to make the fasteners that hold these products together.
 
Stainless steels are a family of ferrous, or iron alloys composed of steel (iron and carbon) with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content that gives it the corrosion resistant properties it is known for.  Generally speaking, the more chromium, the better the corrosion resistance. Chromium creates a passive surface film that is self-healing and resistant to oxidation, corrosion, and/or rust.

 

Stainless steel fasteners are used in products and equipment for industries and applications including:

  • Food Services
  • Marinas / Boats
  • Architectural Design
  • Water Treatment
  • Medical / Surgical
