Washers are available in wide usage in a number of different materials. However, rubber is probably the most commonly used form on the market. This is down to a number of factors, including their cost-effectiveness, versatility and impressive properties.
Wide Variety of Materials Available
Rubber washers encompass a number of materials, including nitrile, neoprene, hypalon, butyl, EPDM and many more different forms. Each of them have their own specific properties and recommended uses. For example, whereas neoprene has fantastic fire resistance and weathering properties, EPDM is resistant to most chemicals and oils. Silicone, on the other hand, is brilliantly versatile at both high and low temperatures.
