Using plastic washers
The list of uses for plastic washers is endless, but one of the main purposes of one is to ensure a sound surface for nuts and bolts to be secured on. Locking and sealing the nuts and bolts in secure positions is another use for these plastic washers. By making sure there is a flat surface for nuts and bolts to be secured onto, you can reduce the space between the components and create a much tighter fitting alignment than there would be without the use of a washer.
Why should you use nylon washers?
Nylon washers and PTFE washers are widely preferred for industrial applications because they are capable of insulating against moisture and electricity. The nylon washers are also corrosion and abrasion resistant as well as being resistant to most chemicals. When buying shim washers, it is important that you make sure you are choosing a washer that is made from a suitable material for the job at hand. Here at Stephens Gaskets, we’ve got steel washers, plastic washers, rubber washers and washers made from many other different types of materials too – all of these will have several different properties that make them ideal for particular applications and requirements.
