They are such a small piece to the puzzle, but nonetheless, washers play a big role in the overall picture. Washers, like the ones we offer at Phoenix Specialty Manufacturing, are important for a few reasons. Washers reduce corrosion by acting as a smooth barrier between two surfaces. They are also used to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, like a screw or a nut. When it comes to your projects, a high-quality washer can make all the difference.
If you are needing specialty-made washers for your project, consider using aluminum.
The Benefits of Aluminum
The history of aviation is closely tied to aluminum. Engineers building the first airplanes used aluminum, and they discovered that the more durable and reliable the aluminum alloys were, the higher and farther an airplane could fly. Since then, engineers and manufacturers in the aerospace, transportation and other industries have continued to develop and work with new aluminum alloys for construction, because of its durability and advantageous properties.
Aluminum is an excellent choice for washers for a couple reasons. For starters, aluminum offers excellent anti-corrosion properties, due to its thin layer of aluminum oxide that forms when the metal is exposed to air. This prevents further oxidation, so you know the aluminum will last. It is also one of the best thermal and electrical conductors, beating out copper and other metals.
When you have an operating system that requires a vast amount of heat dissipation, something as small as an aluminum washer will yield lasting benefits.
