Ningbo Teng Qi Fasteners Co., Ltd is a leading stainless steel washers manufacturer in China. Stainless steel washers are flat, disk-shaped pieces typically made from stainless steel, a corrosion-resistant alloy. They are used in various applications to distribute the load of a threaded fastener, such as a bolt or nut, over a larger surface area. This helps prevent damage to the material being fastened and ensures a secure connection. Stainless steel washers are particularly valuable in environments where corrosion resistance is essential, such as outdoor or marine applications, as they are resistant to rust and staining. They come in various sizes and types, including flat washers, split washers, and lock washers, each serving specific purposes in fastening and securing components.

FAQ about Stainless Steel Bolt:

1.What is the maximum temperature stainless steel washers can withstand?

The temperature resistance of stainless steel washers varies depending on the grade. Generally, they can handle temperatures ranging from -100°C (-148°F) to 800°C (1472°F) or higher for some high-temperature stainless steel grades.

2.Can stainless steel washers be used in food-related applications?

304 stainless steel is less corrosion-resistant than 316, making 316 more suitable for marine or highly corrosive environments.

3.How to prevent galling when using stainless steel washers with stainless steel fasteners?

Lubrication or anti-seize compounds can help reduce the risk of galling (metal-to-metal seizure) when using stainless steel fasteners and washers together.

4.Can stainless steel washers be used in saltwater environments?

Stainless steel can withstand moderately high temperatures, but for extremely high-temperature environments, specialized alloys may be required.
