Where to buy rubber washers
We spoke to Martin’s Rubber, one of the UK’s leading rubber manufacturers, to find out why they should be your first port of call for rubber washers. They have an extensive range of materials, sizes and shapes of custom or standard bulk order rubber washers. Here, we will outline some of the reasons why you should get your rubber washers from Martin’s Rubber.
How does a rubber washer work?
Rubber washers act as a simple gasket around a stud, shaft or bolt, whereby varying degrees of tolerance can be achieved. It is important to consider the amount of clamping force and compression required to achieve an effective seal, without over-stressing the material.
Consideration also needs to be given to the environment in which the rubber washer will be operating and therefore the most suitable material. Rubber washers from Martin’s Rubber come in a variety of different materials and sizes, which can either be bought in bulk from stock or manufactured to order.
