Finishing Washers Basics
Finishing washers are used when a decorative appearance is important. Finishing cup washers form a cup for the head of the fastener to fit in, which creates a professional finish on the installation surface. The washer offers an increased load bearing surface. Available as 18-8 stainless steel countersunk finishing washers.
