What are neoprene washers?
A neoprene washer is a flat component that has a hole in the middle. The piece of hardware is often placed in between two other components/surfaces in order to reduce vibrations or increase tension. In particular, due to their excellent resistant properties, these rubber washers are used to create a tight seal. Often used as sealing washers, they are commonly used in applications that require exposure to humidity and water. They might not look like the most crucial of mechanical and engineering staples on, but to say we’d be stuck without them would be a pretty sweeping understatement. When looking to pick up an indispensable neoprene washer you will find that there are both standard and self-sealing variants to choose from. Both have their primary purposes, but there’s little denying that self-sealing neoprene washers are among the easiest to work with across the entire industry.
The benefits of using neoprene sealing washers
While many benefit from the advantages of metal washers, neoprene sealing washers can be just as beneficial. Metal washers can often rust when exposed to moisture or other corrosive liquids. This limits the applications that they can offer support in. Neoprene sealing washers are incredibly durable and very fluid-resistant. This means they are fantastic for use in plumbing and environments that may present condensation. For example, heating, ventilation, and HVAC systems. With liquids not jeopardising the performance of a neoprene washer, they are also used in boats and pressure washers. Rubber washers naturally provide noise reduction when used as a buffer between other materials. The quality of the neoprene washers you choose, will have a direct and lasting impact on the project as a whole.
Another appealing quality of a neoprene rubber washer is its flexibility. They are much more flexible than metal washers which allows for an even tighter fitting alignment. The rubber washer material also allows for a little more expansion and contraction too. As rubber washers are stronger and less prone to wear and tear, they often last much longer and long-lasting washers are much more cost-effective. Being flexible and waterproof washers, they are also suitable to create seals that stop fluid and air leaking. To make your washers last longer, ensure you loosen and tighten the fasteners around the washer regularly.
