Rubber Washers for sale at Essentra Components. Designed for use with screws, bolts and nuts - flat washers rubber are an essential component in any fastener assembly. Also known as plain washers, they are the most commonly used washer type. Flat washers do not have a locking function, but instead are applied as protection for mating surfaces, from damage. Our rubber washers, which are often used by manufactures for spacing, buffing, sealing and for locking purposes, provide ideal support to threaded fasteners, particularly in the construction industry. These durable flat rubber washers have excellent anti-vibration and shock absorbing properties, whilst also helping to seal fluids and other liquid connections - and offer superior insulation, particularly within electronic assemblies.
The range includes a Thermoplastic Rubber Washer (TPR) that has improved chemical resistance, sealing characteristics and vibration resistance. These are a great solution for oil, gas and automotive industries. These flat rubbers are manufactured to DIN 125 standard. They also benefit from flame resistance to UL94 HB standard.
We also offer a flat washer made from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), which has high stiffness and fantastic electrical properties - making it ideal for use in a range of electrical assembly applications. This PVC washer provides abrasion and moisture resistance.
Round Cup Washers are ofter used for covering large holes, like pipe and tube ends. They are shaped like a cup or bowl and often have a flanged area beneath the head - useful for evenly distributing a load over a surface area.
It insulates the head of a metal screw from electrical currents or other conductive materials. It is resistant to corrosion, oil and other chemicals. It can be used with most screw head styles such as cheese, pan and fillister.
Retaining Rings act like a shoulder, which holds components and assemblies in place on a smooth shaft and can also be used in a housing or bore for one-time uses. Popular applications include retaining shafts.
They are installed into pre-manufactured grooves on axles and pins, creating a shoulder function and retaining the specified component or assembly. The ring design features a lip for easy assembly and dismantling.
A Plastic Retaining Washer is primarily used to hold screws and bolts in place during assembly and have a design that grips the outside of screw or bolt shank. Also known as an Anti Loss Washer, they provide insulation, cushioning and spacing. They help insulate fastening assemblies from moisture and electricity.
This 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. The washer cold forms and fully enters the pitch of the screw to provide sealing.
These 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.
Our Plastic Saddle Washers range consists of Nylon Saddle Washers.
This includes Saddle Washers suitable for the assembly of crossed round tubes. Saddle Connectors that fits to the top of a connector to attach a horizontal tube, and is suitable for the M8 range of Expander Connectors (sold separately).
