Our Cup Washer range is made from Nylon 6/6 that benefits from a UL94 V2 flame rating, as well as being corrosion resistant, and have resistance against oil and most chemicals.
This insulator washer range can accommodate the most common screw head styles, including; Cheese, Pan and Fillister.
Flat Washers for screws made from a variety of plastics. Also known as plain washers, these plastic washers are among the most commonly used. The flat washer helps evenly distribute the load of a fastener, such as a nut, whilst helping to reduce heat and friction during the process of tightening.
Our wide range features a vast array of sizes, with large plastic washers that are suitable for a number of metric threads. We also offer a choice of materials, including a core offering of nylon flat washers. The range is made from Nylon 6/6, with a flame resistance of UL94 V2, these nylon washers are resistant to corrosion and most chemicals.
Other plastic washers for sale include a clear Polycarbonate (PC) washer that offers high transparency. Also featured is a selection of hard plastic washers like Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) plastic washers, which provide excellent mechanical and chemical resistance. They are UL94 V0 rated and have a light brown appearance. Perhaps our Polypropylene (PP) flat washer is your washer of choice? Natural in appearance, this washer has good chemical and moisture resistance. We also stock a range of black plastic washers made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), which have moisture and abrasion resistance properties.
Retaining Washers, also known as Retention Washers or Anti-Loss Washers, are primarily used to hold screws and bolts in place during assembly and have a design that grips the outside of screw or bolt shank. They also provide insulation. cushioning and spacing. They help insulate fastening assemblies from moisture and electricity.
This retainer washer range includes options with internal and external teeth with a tapered design. The washer easily slides on to the screw (or bolt) and is retained by the screw once assembled. Self retaining washers cold form and fully enter the pitch of the screw to provide improved sealing.
These plastic retaining washers allow for preliminary mounting of the screw (or bolt) before securing with a nut. They are ideal when pre-assembly of the screw and washer is required. They also help reduce assembly time and cost.
The range includes material options that provide corrosion, abrasion and chemical resistance.
Shoulder Washers, sometimes known as a Plastic Bush or Step Washer, are commonly used as a bushing to insulate fasteners or shafts within electronic equipment. For this reason, shoulder washers are made from non-conductive materials like Nylon. It is advised to avoid using shoulder bushings in humid environments.
Our extensive plastic shoulder washers range, includes Nylon Shoulder Washer Bushings made from Nylon 6/6 and manufactured to UL94 V2 flame resistance. The nylon sleeve washer range includes;
Screw Insulators (including Metric and Mini options). These are strong and have corrosion resistance - they also provide electrical insulation.
Nylon Shoulder Washers are resistant to many chemicals, as well as being corrosion resistant. They insulate and reduce vibration, and tend to act as a spacer or guide. We also have standard shouldered washer options designed to protect the head of metal screws from electrical contact.
Metric Locking and Sealing Washers are designed to created interference on both the outside diameter of a hex nut, and on the inside diameter of the screw.
Flanged Bushings are suitable for light-load bearings or bushing. They will not rust, corrode or deteriorate - making them highly economical. They act as an electrical insulator by preventing metal-to-metal contact. Low-friction coefficient and can be used as a locator, sleeve, liner or glide.
Our plastic shoulder washer offer also includes a High Temperature Screw Insulator made from UL94 V0 glass-filled Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS), and black in appearance. It can withstand temperatures up to Temperature: up to 428F.
Spring Washers are a type of washer that has a conical shape. This means that without the presence of a load, the washer is unable to sit flush to a surface.
Spring Washers are named as such, because they provide spring force. These handy washers also absorb shock by using axial loads to counter vibrations in an assembly. Our range can be used singly in parallel, in series and in series parallel for a wide range of deflection and load capacity applications.
They also provide electrical and thermal insulation and benefit from resistance to corrosion.
