Sealing Washer | What does a sealing washer do?
Sealing washers are placed beneath a nut, an axle bearing, or a joint, to relieve friction, prevent leakage, loosening, to isolate or distribute pressure. Besides, there are also two major functions of sealing washers.
Firstly, they provide reliable sealing against various devices (oils, coolant and gases) in technical components used in automotive and mechanical engineering. Secondly, they consistently assure ideal compression conditions between the bolt and flange and prevent the destruction of the sealing function.
Washers are metal or plastic disks with a hole in the middle that are used to support a fastener like a screw or to function as a spacer or lock. Different types of washers have different uses. For example: star washers are helpful when the material is soft enough to allow the washer to adhere. Flat washers are used to disburse the compression of the nut or bolt freely etc.
Many people do not choose the correct washer for the correct task. Each washer is designed to perform a specific function, and it is essential that the user choose the appropriate washer. MJ Gasket could provide various sealing washer to meet client’s requirements.
