Although washers are available in wide usage in a number of different materials, rubber is probably the most commonly used form on the market. This is down to a number of factors, including their cost-effectiveness, versatility and impressive properties.
Rubber washers encompass a number of materials, including nitrile, neoprene, hypalon, butyl, EPDM and many more different forms of rubber, each of which has its own specific properties and recommended uses.
