Rubber washers are essential components with versatile applications, ideal for creating seals, dampening vibrations, and providing cushioning between surfaces in various industrial and commercial settings. Our range of rubber washers caters to diverse needs, offering reliable solutions for sealing and protection using a range of high end materials.
• Standard Rubber Washers: Our standard rubber washers are crafted from high-quality neoprene, providing a great value and effective sealing solution. Neoprene rubber washers are known for their good all round performance and will do the job in most applications that don’t require extreme temperatures or hardness.
• Silicone Rubber Washers: For applications requiring high-temperature resistance, our silicone rubber washers are the best choice. Silicone rubber offers excellent performance in extreme temperatures, making these washers suitable for thermally intensive industrial conditions. Silicone rubber also has the advantage of having the capacity to be a food safe material, which is useful for food processing plants.
• EPDM Rubber Washers: EPDM rubber washers provide a comparatively tougher and stronger washer, with the capacity for greater shore hardness. EPDM rubber washers also provide better resistance to weathering, ozone and UV exposure. They also possess a good resistance to acids. This helps these rubber washers to maintain their properties over time, especially when used in outdoor applications or under constant mechanical stress.
Rubber washers find applications across a spectrum of industries, offering valuable sealing and cushioning solutions. In the UK market, some common applications include:
• Plumbing and Pipework: Rubber washers are widely used in plumbing applications to create compression seals in pipes and fittings, these can be made water tight and help to prevent leaks and ensure efficient water flow.
• Automotive Industry: In vehicles, rubber washers are utilised in engine components and various systems, providing sealing solutions in areas where vibrations and temperature variations occur.
• Electrical Equipment: Rubber washers serve as insulators in electrical equipment, preventing the passage of electrical currents and protecting components from damage.
• HVAC Systems: In heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, rubber washers play a crucial role in sealing and insulating ductwork and components.
• Machinery and Manufacturing: Rubber washers are essential in machinery to dampen vibrations, reduce noise, and provide a cushioning effect in moving parts.
