When it comes to selecting washers, you need to choose the right type of washer as well as the most suitable type of material for them. Washer types include plain washers, spring washers, and locking washers. Which one is the best choice for your project depends on how it’s being used. Generally, locking washers will help keep a connection tight while spring washers feature axial flexibility. Which type of washer you need to use will depend on whether you’re planning on utilizing it as a spacer, spring, wear pad, or a locking device or to reduce vibration on your equipment.

When you choose the type of washer, you’ll also need to consider which size you need. Washers can have different diameter and thickness. We can custom create washers ranging from .05” to 6” in diameter, and we can create washers with a thickness ranging from .0005” to .260”.

Which Material Is Most Suitable

Whether you need aluminum, stainless steel, or nonmetallic washers depends entirely on how they will be used. For example, you can purchase heat-treated washers made of aluminum or carbon steel. You can also find washers with different hardness grades of the stainless steel variety. If you’re looking for perforated or wire-mesh washers, you can choose between carbon steel and stainless steel.

We offer a wide variety of options for your washer. Our material choices include aluminum, carbon steel, copper alloys, high temp and cobalt aircraft-grade alloys, nonferrous materials, and stainless steels. Altogether, we have over 300 different raw materials for you to choose from! However, choosing the material is only the first step.
