Stainless Steel Washers
Stainless steel was first discovered in the early 1900s, and has since been an incredibly popular material choice for number of applications. It is typically a steel alloy with more than 10.5% chromium content.
Whereas ordinary steel will easily rust corrode or stain, stainless steel does not, making it particularly useful for a number of different industrial applications, such as in the manufacture of washers. There are a number of different grades of stainless steel, ensuring that, whatever your particular requirements, there is usually a grade of stainless steel which is suitable for your particular application.
The chromium level of stainless steel forms a film of chromium oxide, which prevents corrosion to the surface of the steel by blocking the access of oxygen to it. Stainless steel comes a number of different finishes, including brushed, satin and matte. It is this variety in the material which makes stainless steel so popular throughout industry and manufacturing.
Stainless steel washers are available in a number of different grades, sizes and diameters as well as in any quantity you might require. The typical washer is flat and designs to spread the load of a screw or bolt, thereby preventing damage to the surface of the appliance. In Europe, metric Form A flat washers are generally the most popular ones used, with the thinner Form B washers made to the old British Standard.
Many different types of washers, including spring washers and penny washers are available, each with their own specific intended uses. Penny washers, for example, are designed to spread loads on thin sheet metal or make a connection with an enlarged hole, whereas spring washers are used for precision spacing and maintaining spring forces.
