Stephens Gaskets is a world-leading manufacturer of washers. Since starting the business way back in 1947, we have proudly established ourselves as the go-to company to buy rubber washers. We have the largest range of rubber washers available on the UK and world market. In addition, our extensive tooling range means we can supply them in any size that’s required.
Rubber is defined as;
‘A tough elastic polymeric substance made from the latex of a tropical plant or synthetically.’ And it’s rubber’s tough properties that makes it one of our most popular rubber washers to buy.
Other benefits include the different types of rubber available in order to get the exact solution for your application. This includes neoprene washers, silicone rubber washers, thick rubber washers, thin washers and any other type of rubber washer you might need. Each type has properties that suit them to specific applications. Therefore, they are available in different hardness grades from soft, medium to hard.
Types of rubber washer
Choosing the right washer for the job will depend entirely on the application. Factors such as weather, water applications, oil and petrol applications or temperature prevail can all affect the performance of a rubber washer. Therefore it is important to get it right.
Generally speaking, a natural rubber washer is ideal to simply reduce friction or packer. However, if the rubber washer is to be used externally, a neoprene rubber washer may be more effective.
