There Are Many Advantages to Using Rubber Washers
Although it's generally thought that metal washers offer enhanced durability and performance, the reality is that rubber washers have a number of significant benefits which often means they are a more suitable choice for your project. Not only are they often a more cost-effective choice, they can also bring added value in a range of different applications. As leading providers of specialist washers for a number of different sectors, we can provide you with high volumes of top grade products that won't let you down.
Enhanced Durability, Reduced Noise
Despite the perception that metal washers are stronger, it's frequently a well-made rubber washer that will last the longest! In addition, rubber washers often make less noise during movement – a valuable asset when quiet working is required. Further advantages relate to the relatively light weight of rubber; a rubber washer weighs less than a metal one of comparable size and function. Although the weight difference may only be a fraction of an ounce, when hundreds (or even thousands) of washers are used, the weight difference really becomes apparent.
High Functioning Rubber Washers
Friction not only slows down machinery, it also increases wear and tear on components. Rubber washers usually generate less friction, resulting in an overall gain in efficiency. Rubber is an excellent insulator and will often provide a better seal than a metal option. This gives a number of benefits when working with moving parts where heat needs to be appropriately channeled or fluids securely transported. With so many benefits, it's little wonder that rubber washers are one of our most popular options.
The Advantages of Rubber Washers Include the Following:
- Emit Less Noise
- Extremely Durable
- Generate Less Friction
- Extremely Efficient
- High Functioning
- Channels Heat Appropriately
