Why Use Large Rubber Washers?
Metal washers are a common type of washer. However, if your washer is going to be exposed to moisture or liquids regularly, then large rubber washers are a much better alternative. This is because the properties in rubber means it does not rust.
These types of washers are perfect for use in applications such as plumbing, air conditioning, heating, and ventilation. They are also often used in boats, pools, and pressure washers. Rubber washers are strong, flexible, and durable – allowing them to secure a tight alignment. Additionally, they also allow for slight expansion and contraction, which is sometimes a necessary requirement. All of these properties ensure that these rubber seals can prevent air and liquid from leaking through any gaps, reduce vibrations, and protect surfaces.
Silicone rubber washers are able to withstand extreme temperatures, this is both hot and cold. With the ability to perform well in dry and humid conditions, silicone washers can also resist UV light and fungus.
Neoprene rubber washers
Neoprene washers are often used in plumbing applications. The rubber has a good resistance to oils, solvents, and petroleum, alongside freons, mild acids, and high-aniline point oils.
