Stainless Steel Washers

Stainless steel was first discovered in the early 1900s, and has since been an incredibly popular material choice for a number of applications. It is typically a steel alloy with more than 10.5% chromium content.

No Rust

Whereas ordinary steel will easily rust corrode or stain, stainless steel does not. This makes it particularly useful for a number of different industrial applications, such as in the manufacture of washers. There are a number of different grades of stainless steel. This ensures that, whatever your particular requirements, there is usually a grade of stainless steel which is suitable for your particular application.

Different Finishes Available

The chromium level of stainless steel forms a film of chromium oxide, preventing corrosion to the surface of the steel by blocking the access of oxygen to it. Stainless steel comes a number of different finishes, including brushed, satin and matte. It is this variety in the material which makes stainless steel so popular throughout industry and manufacturing.

Wide Range of Grades and Sizes

Stainless steel washers are available in a number of different grades, sizes and diameters as well as in any quantity you might require. The typical washer is flat and designed to spread the load of a screw or bolt, thereby preventing damage to the surface of the appliance. In Europe, metric Form A flat washers are generally the most popular ones, the thinner Form B washers are made to the old British Standard.

Designed for Specific Uses

Many different types of washers, including spring washers and penny washers are available, each with their own specific intended uses. Penny washers, for example, are designed to spread loads on thin sheet metal or make a connection with an enlarged hole. Whereas spring washers are used for precision spacing and maintaining spring forces.

Strong & Stable

Our stainless steel washers are amongst the most popular washers here at Stephens Gaskets. Stainless steel is one the strongest materials we supply, making it an ideal material to use for washer metal due to its strength and stability.

A stainless steel washer has a considerably large amount of chromium within it that creates a protective layer over the washer. This helps to prevent surface corrosion and rusting. The chromium properties mean that stainless washers will not stain or corrode as easily as normal steel or other metals. Therefore, it is ideal for outside projects.

Long Lasting

Stainless steel washers will help prevent corrosion in your device or mechanism. They will also withstand corrosion, meaning metal washers have the potential to last much longer than other materials.
