Silicon Bronze Flat Washer
Silicon Bronze flat washers are used under bolt heads or nuts to increase the bearing surface area, or to offer protection so that the nut or bolt can be rotated without distortion of the bearing surface. Flat washers are also used to give tightness to a joint, to prevent leakage, and especially to distribute pressure under the head of a bolt or nut. These washers are commonly used in general construction, refineries, and the power and energy industry. Non-magnetic and electrically conductive, these fasteners are best known for their corrosion resistance. Silicon Bronze flat washers are significantly stronger than brass.
