Why Use Flat Washers?

They may seem simple, but a flat washer plays two vital roles. First, they distribute the pressure of a screw or nut evenly, so that they are less likely to loosen, and second, they act as a smooth barrier between steel screws and aluminum surfaces to reduce the wear and tear. They can also be used when the hole is a larger diameter than the fixing nut.


Flat washers are used in many instances—from smaller objects like desks, chairs and computers to larger applications like vehicles, architecture and even spacecrafts. Our flat washers are available in many different sizes and materials, such as nylon, copper, brass, plastic, stainless steel, rubber, and more. Choose high-quality flat washers for any application.
