Nylon

A nylon washer is a thin, typically circular nylon stamping with a hole in the center designed to improve the stress distribution, and to span large clearance holes when using a threaded fastener such as machine screw or a bolt. Nylon washers can be used as a spacer and also reduce vibration to keep the fastener assembly secure. They are non-magnetic and perform well in high temperatures. Nylon is a good insulator and also corrosion resistant. Other advantages to using nylon include resistance to grease and oils, a low coefficient or friction, and the ability to maintain its strength when exposed to a wide range of temperatures. Available and ready-to-ship in a variety of sizes and styles. Browse our selection of nylon washers for your building projects and industrial applications.

Standard Flat, White:  A thin, flat, circular stamping with a centrally located hole. Designed for assembly around a nylon screw and improve stress distribution. Made with engineered nylon 6/6 material with a hardness that meets Rockwell M80. Thermal properties for nylon include a melting point of 500 degrees Fahrenheit and continuous use temperature of 185 degrees.

Standard Shoulder Washer: An integrally formed nylon disk that has a centrally located hole, with a sleeve that has the same internal diameter as the washer, but has an outside diameter which is less than that of the washer’s base. Used to insulate screws, rivets or shafts from panels in electric applications. May also be used as a bushing in mechanical applications to reduce friction between parts. Made with engineered nylon 6/6 material with a hardness that meets Rockwell M80. Thermal properties for nylon include a melting point of 500 degrees Fahrenheit and continuous use temperature of 185 degrees.
