Features and Functionalities of Flat Washers and Spacers

By Alvin Green Subscribe to RSS | July 11th 2012 | Views:

Where there is water supply and usage, there would likely be the need for washers unless the well is used. Today, there is a wide range of washers in the market under the fastener category which come in a spectrum of colors, shapes, sizes and styles. Washers can be standard, flat or with rivets that would ensure a smooth application with their designed functionality.


More and more choices of fasteners in the form of flat washers, nylon rivets and screws are available from any hardware retail stores that also provide nuts, bolts, spacers and bushings. There are decorative fasteners, washers, bushings and spacers in the market to meet the growing development in society.

As more development takes place with the progressive technology advancing quickly, there would be more home and commercial applications which need the use of washers and spacers. These can be of standard or flat designs which are usually of durable nylon in various sizes.

They may also have supporting hardware such as fasteners, caster sockets, clips and pins. Newer washer designs may come on with changing lifestyles and social developments; there may need to have flat shoulder washers and nylon insulation washers to cater to the different consumer needs and demands.


Flat insulation washers are important in many applications where compatible and strong connections are required for incompatible metals. Such pieces are placed in between incompatible pieces to allow a smooth functioning.

Such washers are also ideal for electrical insulation. There are flat shoulder washers which are usually used in mechanical applications where vibration can be reduced while providing a strong resistance to corrosion. These washers can be found in flanged or standard design. Standard washer spacers can be used on standard thread sizes.


Flat washers are usually made of nylon with natural color; they are designed to be tough although they look trivial and flimsy but they are designed to resist corrosion and various acidic chemicals.

Retaining flat washers are specially designed to grip the outside of a screw shank strongly but allow easy slides on the screw. They would retain their firm position once assembled on. Hence, the assembly time is reduced as they are easy to fit. They must be available for domestic consumers as well as international customers if they wish to be progressive. One can request for a free catalog to view the availability of flat washers desired and make an order easily through a phone call, walk in or online.
