When you need some of the toughest washers in the industry, stainless steel washers are durable, water-resistant, corrosion-resistant and made to last for decades to come. The strength of stainless steel makes it popular for a variety of applications, including pipes, appliances, drains, cutlery, grills, pots, bridges and surgical tools. With thousands of different washers on the market, you’ll find a stainless steel washer for virtually any project.
Superior Washer and Gasket Co. sells thousands of washers in nearly every combination of thickness and diameter. If you’re ready to start shopping, here’s what you need to know before you purchase stainless steel washers from a trusted manufacturer.
What Makes Washers So Valuable?
Stainless steel washers are just as valuable as the fasteners themselves. When you attach a washer to the bolt, the washer distributes the tension evenly across the surface. This keeps the fastener from damaging the surface, particularly when you work with a soft material like wood. Steel washers also keep the fastener from loosening and falling out of the socket.
Why Is Stainless Steel Popular For Washers?
Washers could hold up a structure for years, decades or–theoretically–even centuries. For this reason, manufacturers like Superior Washer and Gasket Co. provide washers made from different types of stainless steel. Here’s a look at the benefits of stainless steel:
- Resistant to various acids, chemicals, chloride and other substances that could cause corrosion
- Withstands extreme temperatures on both ends of the scale
- Requires little maintenance, especially compared to other metals
- Stands up to high levels of pressure and force
- Withstands water and moisture, making it ideal for outdoor projects
- One of the toughest metals on the market
- Offers more sustainability because it lasts much longer and doesn’t require extra treatment on your part
With these benefits in mind, stainless steel washers are one of the top products that we sell at Superior Washer and Gasket Co.
What Is Stainless Steel Alloy 20?
While most of our washers come in stainless steel, we sell a selection of washers made from alloy 20 stainless steel. Alloy 20 steel is a unique alloy made to withstand sulfuric acid and other corrosive chemicals. Alloy 20 contains a small percentage of copper, which protects it from corrosion. This makes it popular for projects that involve exposure to harsh conditions. Nickel makes up the largest portion of alloy 20, although it contains other materials like carbon, manganese and silicon.
