Everyone has stories of how their white goods, particularly washing machines, tend to bounce and vibrate around the utility room. That’s where cork washer uses come into play!
Often the problem of washing machine vibration can be blamed on the installation or the particular make of product. Nevertheless, as washing machines grow older they inevitably go through many years of wear and tear. But for those people who want to keep their old machine in perfect running order. A cork washer uses is one answer is to reduce the noise and vibration.
Why Cork Washer uses are so Good for White Goods
Unbeknown to most people, washers can be made out of cork and used in a host of appliances. For washing machines, in particular, washers made from cork are actually a very popular product. The cork in cork washers has an elastic property, which is directly responsible for reducing the noise and vibrations of the machine.
Furthermore, white goods are notorious as fire hazards, particularly older washing machines, and the beauty of cork washer uses is that they are made from wood – or, to be more precise, tree bark. This makes them ideal for using in electrical appliances, especially if those appliances also use a lot of water. They’re non-conducive and are often used to replace plastic washers. Cork washer uses include being water-resistant, so they are a perfect complement for ageing washing machines. Safe as houses, as they say. Our cork washers are also ISO 9001 : 2000 accredited. So they come with quality guarantees.
This element of safety and smooth running has made cork washers a popular choice with manufacturers as well as householders.
Like all of their metal and rubber relatives, cork washers are tiny elasticated discs that fit into the space between two component parts. So they’re built specifically to reduce friction – or vibrations – ensuring the machine can function smoothly and for long periods of time.
